On Sunday, August 22, Glimmerglass honored its volunteers with a reception themed, “You Are An Essential Piece.” We have more than 200 volunteers who join us as ushers or on the Glimmerglass Guild.

Our volunteers provide essential support to the company throughout the year. The Guild furnishes dinners  for staff on Saturday afternoons in July and August when hectic schedules do not allow us to leave the site for a dinner break between matinee and evening performances. Our volunteers also help by painting residences used by guest artists, serving as greeters at performances and other events, providing transportation for artists and staff to and from area airports and train stations, assisting with campus landscaping, entering information into databases, and much, much more.

We are glad we are able to host this annual event for our volunteers to demonstrate how much we appreciate all their hard work. Every year, we announce an Usher of the Year and a Volunteer of the Year. This year, we were pleased to announce Ernest Adams as Usher of the Year. New Guild Board Member Simon Carr-Ellison was announced as Volunteer of the Year.

  1. Congrats to all the Glimmerglass Volunteers. I know all too well how important they are to organizations such as Glimmerglass.

    Special congrats to Ernie Adams! He’s been one of the most affable and enthusiastic ambassadors any organization could ask for.

    I am glad he received this recognition.
