Annual Volunteer Bond
To keep registration fees affordable and to keep our program running smoothly, we count on each family volunteering over the course of each calendar year (October 1st – September 30th). Events include (but are not limited to) working at casinos, setting and clearing recital receptions, assisting at end of year events, assisting with lunches during summer camps, assisting with fund raising events, and participating on the Amici Board. Additional opportunities often occur. Emails are sent out as volunteers are required. Volunteers are selected on a first-come basis.
Amici String Program requires one $250 volunteer bond cheque from each family. Registration in the Amici Program assumes a commitment to fulfil volunteer requirement for the calendar year (October 01-September 30).
A volunteer list will be maintained. Volunteer bond cheques will be destroyed after September 30, 2024 to those fulfilling this requirement; Families that choose not to fulfill their volunteer commitment will have their cheques deposited as a non-volunteer buyout.
2023/24 is a casino year for Amici. All families are urged to volunteer this season at the Elbow River Casino (Date TBD Jan-Mar 2024)
Amici is mask friendly environment. Regardless of any individual’s choice, all musicians will be treated with kindness and respect.
