Hands-on help for YOSA

YOSA welcomes volunteers for events and projects that support our work for young musicians across San Antonio.  If you’d like to be involved, please contact volunteer@yosa.org for more information.  YOSA depends on our parents who help prepare mailings as their young musicians rehearse.  These are usually announced in the weekly email . . . but if you see a mountain of envelopes at a rehearsal, we invite you to join the stuffing, stamping, and conversation that takes place.  In addition, YOSA needs your help for special events.

1.  Stop! And Feel the Music  Every October, the pop-up orchestra returns for a fundraising event.  The event runs from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m.  YOSA needs people who can:

  • Find silent auction items

  • Direct parking the night of the event
  • Welcome visitors
  • “Spot” bidders during live auction
  • Help close silent auction
