The Irish Chamber Orchestra is striving to increase its network of volunteers within the community. Perhaps you would like to get more involved with the ICO’s activities, or encourage others to enjoy the ICO’s music as much as you do?

If you have a passion for our music, then you can help others to share this joy by becoming an ambassador for us. As an ICO Ambassador, you can bring the power of music to others and support the orchestra in its mission to enrich lives through music. Our volunteer Ambassadors play a major role in sustaining and growing the Irish Chamber Orchestra by cultivating patrons, building audiences, generating positive word-of-mouth and raising awareness of the ICO in their communities.

Life sometimes gets in the way of planning things we mean to do, so you as an ambassador can simply help others to book our inspirational concerts into their diaries. You can operate within your workplace and become an ambassador for any network of people you know. The benefits of groups of 10 or more include 10% off tickets and one free ticket for the organiser.

There are opportunities to volunteer within the ICO:

Flyer Distribution

Some of the ICO’s keenest concert-goers can pop into the ICO Studio(9am-5pm), or to the ICO courtesy desk on concert nights, and pick up the leaflets to distribute within their community. We organise leaflet display through specialist distribution companies, but they can’t get everywhere! So if you know somewhere near you where you think ICO flyers should be displayed, just come and see us to pick some up.

ICO Concert Assistants

If you would like to help out at our courtesy desk or sell programmes, we would be delighted to hear from you.
