We have big ideas and a small team. Help us grow into our shoes as we embark on our very first season! Become a part of the festival and get to know our artists and directors by working with us.

Open your home to a Bard Music West artist or scholar. Hosting can be a wonderful way to get to know the musicians and speakers of the festival. Many of our artists will come from outside the Bay Area and need a welcoming place to stay during their time here. You will not be required to provide transportation or meals, just a place for practicing and sleeping. If you are interested in hosting, please contact


Volunteer ushers receive free admission to concerts and all other Bard Music West events. If you are interested in volunteering as an usher, please contact
