My name is Morgan but you can call me Alejandro, that is my middle name (as many prefer it); I've been volunteering for WHCO since 2016 and if you ask me why I've been doing this, I'd response without any doubt that is because I love the idea that is bringing wonderful music and excellent performances to the community in an accessible way that creates not just a good experience for people but also a sense of being a part of a diverse community. One of the things I enjoy the most being a volunteer for WHCO is the opportunity to see and listen to great performances of talented musicians and the Music Director, Chris Whittaker. A fun fact about me is that in one concert I was in charge of the lights but I was so absorbed with intensity of the music that I forgot to increase the stage lights, I was in such a magical lapse of music that a camera man had to motion for me to turn on the light!
My name is Moses and I have been volunteering with WHCO for two years. I started volunteering here when I came across a posting on Volunteer Match and the mission of WHCO was exactly something I believe in—amazing art that’s accessible to everyone. I’m so grateful to volunteer because it means having a new family that I get to see every month! A fun fact about me is that I have been an Irish Dancer for 12 years! Currently I dance with the New York Studio of Irish Step Dance.
My name is Porfirio but everyone calls me Porfi. I started volunteering with WHCO because the music is terrific, the concerts were free, and I wanted to give back. I saw how it unified the community. My favorite thing about WHCO is the positive vibe and how everyone is welcome. It put "the heights" on the music scene map! I've been in "the arts" my whole life. I believe "the arts" keep our hearts and communities alive. Music connects our human spirit!
