I want to thank you for considering a volunteer position at the Anderson Center. At present, we are not accepting new people for the ARTSCORPS. I can, however, give you some information about this volunteer group and an invitation to check back with us at a future time.
Programming at the Anderson Center enhances the quality of life for all members of the community and the University. As an ARTSCORPS volunteer, you will be supporting the primary performing-arts organization serving the Southern Tier of New York through its offerings of major touring orchestras, ensembles and soloists, new music, dance and non-traditional forms of all performance genres.
The Anderson Center is a forum for creative ideas, a place that offers nourishment for the soul and entertainment to renew and enhance life, and a place where artists and audience can communicate. The ARTSCORPS helps create optimal conditions for that aesthetic communication and is instrumental in the success of each performance.
Each production is brought together and organized for the benefit of the audience. When the organization has been effective, it will appear to the audience that the performance “just happened — like magic.” The audience arrives, the performance takes place and aesthetic communication occurs between these two elements. To prevent intrusion that may influence or interrupt audience enjoyment of a performance is the fundamental obligation of House Operations and the ARTSCORPS.
The ARTSCORPS maintains a sense of sophistication that tells patrons something special is about to happen. Your activities make the patrons feel comfortable so they can sit back, relax and enjoy the show. The way ARTSCORPS members greet patrons, check tickets, hand out programs and answer questions demonstrates to them how pleased we are they’re here — helping them relax and truly enjoy all performances offered at the Anderson Center.
The ARTSCORPS is the first act of every Anderson Center performance. We hope you are up for the challenge and rewards of being a part of this group in the future.
