You can help conserve our environment and lower costs for Houston Early Music. Mailing postcard reminders to patrons prior to each concert uses up paper and costs us money. Many patrons rely on our website and email newsletter for concert information. If you are on our print (postal) mailing list and would like us to remove your name, please email us at info@houstonearlymusic.org

Volunteer to help Houston Early Music

If you would like to help bring the joy of early music to Houston, and to get to know the folks behind the scenes, please call or email us. Our Volunteer Coordinator will contact you to find ways you can get involved. It takes more than excellent musicians to make the music: it won’t happen without the invaluable effort of ushers, envelope stuffers, concert assistants, ticket takers, reception hosts … and many more people just like you. If you love the music and have some time to give, please let us know. Just email us at info@HoustonEarlyMusic.org
