The Hog needs a couple of new Concert Coordinators. Coordinators take turns being the host at our Friday evening concerts at the Coffeehouse. A Coordinator arrives at the Wil-Mar about 6:30pm and coordinates with volunteer workers to prepare the space for the evening. He or she acts as host to the guests and performers, and makes sure announcements get made. The coordinator may help set up the sound system. He or she counts the admissions and food boxes at the end of the evening and assist the volunteers in putting everything away properly. Training is available by working with another coordinator a couple of times.
The Hog needs a few more people on the list to work at the Coffeehouse during Friday evening concerts. Volunteers arrive at about 6:30pm to setup the admission and food tables. During the concert, volunteers staff the admission table or the refreshment table. You are the one to greet people when they arrive and answer questions they may have about the Hog. At the conclusion of the concert, volunteers clean dishes and take down and store everything. It's a fun and rewarding experience, and you get to hear some great music, too.
A volunteer is needed to act as a liason with other newsletters/web sites (such as Madison Folk Music Society) and newspaper entertainment editors to promote the Hog's concerts and events.
There are many people behind the scenes and up front of house, too. If you have talents that don't match with our positions listed here, contat us. You can always volunteer to help someone else already doing a job such as:
