Student Ambassadors

Greenville Symphony Student Ambassadors

The Greenville Symphony is excited to announce its newest community program, Greenville Symphony Student Ambassadors (GSSA). Its purpose is to connect high school students with the symphony and with other students who share this interest.

Student Ambassadors will be invited to concerts, post-concert socials, and have the opportunity to meet guest artists. In return, they will be asked to promote Greenville Symphony among their peers, volunteer at education events, and be encouraged to bring a friend to the concert hall.

Qualifications

  • The inaugural members of GSSA will be students who study an instrument and who are passionate about classical music.
  • They must be a high school student in upstate South Carolina or western North Carolina. Homeschoolers are welcome to apply. (Students should still be in high school when the program starts in October of 2022).
  • Students should be able to attend at least four of the six Masterworks programs. These concerts are free for Ambassadors.

Activities

  • Student Ambassadors will help promote Masterworks concerts to their peers on social media.
  • Student Ambassadors will assist staff members before the concerts and sit as a group during the performance. The Program will begin in the 2022-23 Season. The first concert is in October, 2022.
  • After each concert, Student Ambassadors will have an opportunity to socialize in downtown Greenville at Spill the Beans or a similar location.
  • Student Ambassadors will be asked to work with staff at children’s concerts and other educational events.
  • Student Ambassadors may be given performance opportunities.

How To Apply

Notification
