Volunteer and Join Our Community
Become a member of one of the largest and most successful supporting volunteer organizations in Santa Barbara, which generates net proceeds of $100,000 annually to help support the full-scholarship program at the Academy; enabling 140 outstanding fellows from around the world to study in Santa Barbara each summer.
This remarkable program has created enduring friendships, deepened the community’s appreciation for music, and fostered moral support support for Academy Fellows. Unique to the Music Academy, it is an integral part of the Festival experience for all involved and has transformed the Academy’s community for over 20 years.
The Music Academy needs ushers, ticket takers, and general volunteers for its annual Summer School & Festival which features 170 events from mid-June to mid-August, as well as special events and Met: Live in HD screenings throughout the year.
