Season Summary 2016-17

Texas Community Music Festival Information

Volunteer Signup

Volunteer for the 12th annual Texas Community Music Festival,
Date: April 21st - April 30th, 2017
Central Market Cafe North Lamar, rain or shine!

We have over 70 blocks scheduled for full-band performances and short showcase sets, which requires a LOT of coordination to run smoothly.  As a volunteer, you will share duties by setting and breaking stage, receiving and directing the talent, and informing the audience.  

You'll be representing the love for Austin music that drives your desire to continue performing too, whether with the host organization Austin Civic Wind Ensemble or your personal musical pursuits.

The best part?  You'll get to hear a LOT of great local music, all in one central location, during the most beautiful weather of the year.  OUR 2017 SCHEDULE IS HERE!

Be sure to include your email in the contact information -- the first 24 volunteers to sign up for two or more shifts will receive a link to claim an exclusive TCMF 12 t-shirt!*  These are in limited supply and sizes, so be the first if you want to get your first choice.  (Sorry, you may not "volunteer" while you are on stage performing, but you CAN schedule your shifts adjacent to your performance time.)

*pending budget approval
Thank you for your help!
