The orchestra is governed by a volunteer management committee of local community and orchestra members.

The orchestra is further supported by community volunteers who offer their time to help with box office, stage and venue management, and audience comfort and safety.

We do rely heavily on this volunteer support, and welcome new volunteers. If you would like to register as a volunteer with Steel City Strings, please contact us by phone (0467 869 478) or email steelcitystrings@gmail.com.
