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 2022/23 season is $300 per family.
Deposit must be received in the form of a cheque, post-dated to June 1, 2023 and made payable to the Edmonton String Players Association.
Your deposit cheque will be returned to you upon completion of the following mandatory requirements;

Attend at least two (2) ESPA Meetings (typically held during rehearsals); AND
Attend at least one (1) Casino Shift (Nov. 25-26, 2022)
Hold a position on the ESPA Board for the duration of the 2022/2023 season, or until the next AGM


If it is not possible for you to serve on the board or to attend the casino, please contact the Volunteer Coordinator to discuss other roles that you might be able to fill.
Please know that we DON’T want to just cash your volunteer deposit – our fundraisers bring in much more than that and your participation does make a difference!
