Facilities Crew

Concert Parking Attendants

Parking Attendants ("Parkers") direct concertgoers to form organized rows in the parking field beside the concert hall — the Music Shed. Being the first staff patrons come across at the concerts, parkers often answer general questions as well. (Where are the restrooms? Where is the box office?)

Concessions Staff

The Concessions Staff is responsible for organizing the concessions booth prior to concerts (making coffee, stocking the refrigerator etc.) selling concessions at intermission and cleaning up afterwards. They also inventory supplies to keep track of what is needed prior to the next concert.
