Opera Cabal frequently needs help from volunteers for events in the Chicago and New York areas, such as performances, benefits, salons and mailings. Volunteer duties vary widely and may include distributing surveys, handling equipment, checking a guest list, or even hosting visiting guest artists. We could not do without the generosity and support of our volunteers! If you have a specific skill or service that you would like offer, we'd love to hear from you.
