We Can't Do It Without You!

Cappella Clausura is built on the foundation of our volunteers– without them, the magic of each concert could not happen.


Our volunteer corps supports our mission at every level: ushering, typing concert texts, stuffing mailings, videotaping concerts, hanging signs, and more. We’re always glad to offer complimentary tickets as a thank you!
