Thank you for your interest in volunteering for the Reno Jazz Festival. You’ll be taking part is what is considered one of biggest jazz events in the world. RJF hosts the legendary jazz innovators of today and of tomorrow as well as educators and other professional musicians across the country. The Festival has grown considerably in size since its debut in 1962. We estimate over 350 school groups, 9,000 participants, 50 clinicians, guest performers, and adjudicators will be in attendance this year, and with three days of concerts, clinics, and competitions we could use some help.

Lending a hand for a half day gets you a free ticket to that night’s show and a Reno Jazz Festival T-shirt. If you can help us out the whole day, we’ll throw in lunch and snacks. All we ask is that you attend one of our mandatory volunteer orientations held Sunday April 21st @ noon in the Joe Crowley Student Union room 423 and Tuesday April 23rd @ 7:00 p.m. also in the Joe Crowley Student Union but in room 356. The orientations are just to make sure we’re all on the same page.

We’ll need assistance with the following jobs Door Monitor Make sure everybody is wearing the appropriate color wristband prior to allowing them to enter the performance area in between sets. Announcer/Timer Keep the room on time according to the schedule, get the groups adjudication forms to the judges, serve as the announcer for the room (unless the director would like to do this him/herself). In addition, along with the stage monitor (if there is one), please help the adjudicators whenever possible by asking if they need anything, etc. Stage Guide Lead groups from their warm-up room, to the performance venue, and then to the feedback room. Photography Assistant Assist in taking photography orders Info Desk Assistant Assist in the site coordinators and main info desk staff at each site. Provide assistance to fulfilling merchandise orders, answering questions, etc.
We'll just need you at one of the two orientation days held Sunday April 21st and noon and Tuesday April 23rd at 7:00 p.m.
