With a wide range of opportunities available, volunteers can support the Mendocino Music Festival by distributing brochures, building and painting the stage, selling concessions, taking tickets, and more, while benefiting from free festival tickets and other perks.
Founded in part by Symphony of the Redwoods music director and conductor, Allan Pollack, the Festival crams almost every musical genre into two weeks in July (11th – 25th), with several performances focusing on classical music. Calder Quartet, pianist Paul Hersh and his violinist son Stefan, and vocal ensemble Cantus are just a few of the classical acts featured this year. There will also be a production of Rossini’s Barber of Seville and a series of lectures on Mozart (including one with punch tasting!) The Festival Orchestra, led by Pollack, will be joined in performances by mezzo-soprano Frederica von Stade, violinist Livia Sohn and pianist Spender Myer, as well as the Festival Chorus.
