Volunteering

Edmonton String Players Association is a volunteer run, non-profit organization and federally registered charity.  This means that the Music Enrichment Program is able to remain affordable and accessible to students across socio-economic borders.  Without the time and support of volunteers, the Music Enrichment Program would not be able to continue. Thank you to all of those who volunteered their time in various ways throughout the last season!


The Volunteer Deposit for the 2021/22 season is $300 per family.
Deposit must be received in the form of a cheque, post-dated to June 1, 2022 and made payable to the Edmonton String Players Association.
