Housing for Singers
During our festival seasons, supporters house members of the Chorale. Not only does this service provide a welcoming atmosphere for the vocalists, but it helps address a significant budget expense. If you have housing available that is private and pet-free, please contact Kelli Bergthold, Administrative & Box Office Assistant, at (505) 988-2282 ext. 2.

We always need a few extra hands at concerts. Opportunities include Ushering, Merchandise Sales, and Will-Call/Box Office assistance. If you are interested in being involved with any those duties, contact Emma Marzen, Box Office Manager & Community Liaison at (505) 988-2282 ext. 1.

Special Events
The Desert Chorale hosts two fundraising events each year along with four to six other special events to raise awareness and funds to benefit the Chorale. If you are interested in assisting with an event, please contact Janice Mayer, Executive Director, at (505) 988-2282 ext. 5.

Occasionally we need office support. If you are interested in helping with mailings, marketing, or library maintenance, contact Emma Marzen, Box Office Manager and Community Liaison, at (505) 988-2282 ext. 1.

Are you a college student needing an internship opportunity for your degree program? Do you love the arts? Do you care about nonprofits?
