MEET OUR VOLUNTEERS

The production of monthly concerts without any employees requires that many volunteers take on unpaid “jobs.” The work that Board members do each month was listed here earlier, but here’s what our other volunteers are doing for TSJS:

Membership Chairman Jay Schultz works at the admissions table, updates computer records and communicates with current and potential members. His wife, Lou Schultz, collects tickets and runs door prize drawings. Our piano tuner Dave Bender also works at the admissions table and help with membership records.

Music Committee Chairman Bill Hoffman schedules and books the bands and soloists for our concerts.

Jim McGann writes most of the concert reviews for the Strutter, and serves as photo editor. He and Paul Macatee are our concert photographers. They have contributed hundreds of photos for our Web gallery and printed publications. Jack Adams is our concert videographer.

Steve Peitzman writes our programs, prepares online concert listings and contacts newspapers.

Ernie Pugliesi writes press releases and articles for the Strutter.

Donald Neal helps with Delaware publicity.

At concerts, Lorraine and Jim Maitland, Janet Graehling, PJ Ingram and Sally Wallace help with refreshments. Adam Rogers helps with programs and other tasks. Paola Meimaris puts up lawns signs.

To explore how you can help as a volunteer, send an email to Sandy Catz at president@tristatejazz.org.
