How can I become a Music of the Baroque usher?

Ushers for Music of the Baroque concerts are members of the Saints, an organization of volunteers for the performing arts. While ushering is their most visible presence, the Saints also provide other kinds of volunteer services for nonprofit, as well as some for-profit, groups in the Chicago area.

Because the Saints believe that groups like Music of the Baroque enrich the community, they volunteer their services in exchange for seats at performances.

The Saints have provided volunteer ushers for performing arts groups since the organization was established in 1980. It is believed to be the first and only organized volunteer support group of its kind in the country to serve the entire performing arts community.

For more information, contact the Saints directly at 773.529.5510 or at
