We welcome enthusiastic volunteers who have a love of live music and a passion for serving the people of our community.  GFO volunteers bring their experience, skills, and new ideas to GFO operations.  Volunteers can support our musical mission in a variety of ways.  From assisting musicians and audience members at concerts, to serving on the Board of Directors.
Whether you have just a few hours to spare, or are looking for a rewarding new endeavor, we’d love to have you join our team!  Contact us now!

There is a place for You at GFO!

Gateway Noteables

Our Volunteer Team

Our local volunteers, also know as Gateway Noteables, are a fantastic team!  Our free classical concerts are performed by professional musicians and supported by The Noteables.  This team’s dedicated  efforts are essential to our success.  We’d like to give a special thanks to Jay Mitchell who provided many of our pictures and to John Burroughs school for providing the rehearsal space for our orchestra.

We extend our sincerest thanks to the 2023-24 Gateway Notables:
