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 fundraising 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.
The Amici Strings Program requires one $250 volunteer bond cheque from each family. Registration in the Amici Program assumes a commitment to fulfil volunteer requirements for the full calendar year (October 1st – September 30th).
A volunteer list will be maintained. Volunteer bond cheques will be destroyed after September 30th, 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).
As a special group outing, we will be attending the Pro Musica family show “More Rocky Mountain Fairy Tales” on April 28, 2024 – 1 p.m. or 3:30 p.m. Storyteller/Musician Samantha Whelan Kotkas and her friends will entertain you and your children with musical interactive tales of child accessible hikes in the Rocky Mountains.

Come early for activities one hour before each show, stay after for a free cookie reception and meet the performers. There is a special rate for Amicini students and family members to attend.
