Help Volunteer with the Columbus Jazz Arts Group

When you become involved with the Jazz Arts Group as a volunteer, you help us support the performances and Jazz Academy programs that have such a positive impact on Columbus, Ohio. Volunteer opportunities are available for both short-term and ongoing projects. From helping at our annual fundraiser One Night Only to manning a booth at the Jazz & Ribs Festival, JAG loves having volunteer help at big events. Activities could include making peanut butter and jelly sandwiches at a PBJ & Jazz concert, distributing literature at a major festival, or assisting with set-up and tear-down of One Night Only.

Most events take place in the evenings and on weekends. Volunteers receive complimentary admission to ticketed events. Upcoming event dates include:

Jazz & Rib Fest, July 22 – 24, 2011 – man the booth and distribute information about Jazz Arts Group. Shifts are available in two and four hour increments.

JazZoo!, July 8, July 15, July 22, August 12, 2011 – four (4) to six (6) volunteers are needed per concert to pass out programs, assist attendees in finding their tables, and host patron experiences.

One Night Only, November 10, 2011 – more TBA soon!


JAG’s outdoor usher program at the Lincoln Theatre ensures that our guests have a great time all the way to their car after a show. Our outdoor ushers work with JAG staff and Lincoln Theatre security to assist patrons as they depart the theatre and head to one of the many parking lots around the theatre. Working in pairs, our outdoor ushers are provided flashlights, asked to wear bright clothing and a big smile, and are provided a ticket to the show at the Lincoln as a thank you for their assistance.

JAG is looking for eight (8) outdoor ushers for each scheduled Inside Track performance in the Lincoln Theatre during the 2011-12 season. These dates are:

September 23 & 24, 2011
January 27 & 28, 2012
March 2 & 3, 2012
May 18 & 19, 2012
