Howdy!

 

The 33rd year of JAZZ IN JUNE is just around the corner. The festival dates are June 16-18, 2016. This year is going to be another great year, with a lineup of excellent jazz and blues artists.
We know you are excited as well and hope you again will be available to support your community and Jazz in June by volunteering your time. Volunteer job descriptions are listed below. Jazz in June relies entirely on volunteers and your dedication of time and energy in the past has contributed to many successful festivals.
As in the past, you will receive a voucher upon the completion of your four hours of volunteer time to redeem for your free Jazz in June T-shirt. However, if you volunteer for the clean-up shift after the end of the concert, one two-hour shift is all we request.
The volunteer check-in location will again be under a tent on the south side of the Brookhaven parking lot on Thursday and Friday night and under the north side of the pavilion at Andrews Park on Saturday night.
If you would like to volunteer, please download the application form, and email the completed form to volunteers@jazzinjune.org. You will be contacted to confirm your specific volunteer assignment as soon as possible. See you at the festival!
Sincerely,
Volunteer Coordinator
