GO volunteers have an excellent opportunity to share their skills and love for the arts as they connect with people of all ages and backgrounds.  Whether you are a high school or college student, a working adult or retiree, we have opportunities for you to enrich your life and the lives of others, meet people with similar interests, and help fulfill our mission while having fun!

Volunteers are a crucial part of the operation of the Gulfshore Opera whether you help onstage, backstage, or front of house (ushering). 

Our volunteers are integral to our success!

GO Ambassadors is a volunteer support group for the organization, which is chaired by Board member Beverly Wernette. Its charter is to network and promote Gulfshore Opera events, increasing ticket sales and revenues, in addition to organizing intimate Social Outreach fundraisers and promoting the Harmony Choir and its mission. .Ambassadors are the cheerleaders for Gulfshore Opera, and its Committee members can be found at performances and events, greeting ticket holders and friends with a smile. An example of one of the Ambassador special events was the very successful Mamma Mia party last Season.

Beverly is always looking for new recruits, and encourages anyone interested in joining the group to please contact her at She guarantees that being a GO Ambassador will be a rewarding experience and a great way to make new friends!

The production was excellent in every way!
