Every month, CBC Calgary staff and members of our community get together to help a specific organization with a volunteer task for a few hours. Spearheaded by Angela Knight of the CBC Calgary Eyeopener, the CBC Do Crew celebrates the spirit of volunteerism in Calgary.

Most recent event 

Opera in the Village, Do Crew volunteers

When: Friday, Aug. 14, 2015
Where: East Village RiverWalk Plaza at 618 Confluence Way S.E

Opera in the Village is Canada's only outdoor summer opera festival. For our next CBC Do Crew mission we're helping the Calgary Opera with their production of The Mikado at Riverwalk Plaza in the East Village. This is a big event so we need lots of volunteers to help with a variety of positions. Greeters, bartenders, drink ticket sellers, VIP parking assistants, gate monitors and more. There are various shifts between 3 p.m. and midnight. If you're interested in volunteering please email and I'll provide you more information.

Volunteers will receive:

  • 1 Dress rehearsal ticket to The Mikado on either Aug. 11 or 12
  • OR 2 dress rehearsal tickets for another production in the Calgary Opera's 2015/2016 season
  • 20% off regular priced Opera in the Village tickets

One last thing you will be required to attend an orientation session on Saturday, Aug. 8 at 10 a.m. Location TBA. No more than an hour — I promise. For more on Calgary Opera check out We have about 50 spots to fill so I hope to hear from you soon!
