Volunteers

Harmonica Jazz Lynchburg“The Ellington is a wonderful venue for all type of people to enjoy awesome live music in a relaxed setting. What a gem in our city! Everyone needs to experience The Ellington.”
Lydia Langley

The Ellington is managed by unpaid music lovers, so all contributions go directly to programming and operating costs. Board members and volunteers serve as event staff at our shows. Volunteers also help with publicity, fund raising, outreach and special projects. If any of these opportunities sound interesting, or if you have some other talent that you would like to share to help our organization, please e-mail us at This email address is being protected from spambots.

The Ellington sends a shout out to our long time volunteer coordinator, David Farris, who retired in 2016 and some of our regular volunteer staff: Byron Maddox, Martha Maddox, Cindy Burks, Wanda Faye Holmes, Dale Johnson, Lloyd Bryant, Billy Boardwine, Mary Hudson, Billy Taylor, Kevin van Horn, Terri van Horn, Greer Chapin, Ken Toler and Inga Wilkerson. We couldn't do it without you!
