Education, Artistic Admin, and Library Intern
The Education/Artistic/Library internship provides an opportunity to experience the inner workings of a professional orchestra’s Artistic and Education Departments through hands-on experience. It requires a detail-oriented individual who can multi-task and work within a close-knit team. This internship will require the occasional night and weekend work during production and event weeks. Possible projects that this internship may include are:
EDUCATION PROGRAM SUPPORT: Works with the Director of Education and Community Engagement (EDCE) to create supplemental materials for programs throughout the year, both in education and for general publicity of the Boulder Phil. Interns also participate in dialogue about new and expanding programs. Examples of projects include creating curriculum guides and event flyers; facilitating communications with arts partners, patrons, teachers, and students; gathering data and analyzing program impact; coordinating volunteers; assisting with the preparation of grant proposals and reports relating to education and community engagement as appropriate.
CONCERT & EVENT PLANNING AND SUPPORT: Work with the Directors of EDCE and Artistic Administration to prepare and execute events throughout the year, including Masterworks concerts, the Discovery Concert program, special events, and community programs. This work includes publicity, recruitment of participants, logistics, and communications. Over the course of a season, the intern develops a breadth of skills and experience to enable him/her to serve as lead staff for one or more events.
ORCHESTRA LIBRARY SUPPORT: Work alongside the Librarian to prepare and procure materials for all subscription, pops, and education concerts throughout the season. The intern will learn the ins and outs of the orchestra library, update repertoire history and catalogs, and prepare and submit reports for music licensing. Artistic Liaison Support: The intern will support the Director of Artistic Administration and Executive Director with guest artist transportation, sharing transportation coverage for rehearsals and performances, as well as transportation to/from the Denver Airport. This internship requires access to a reliable, clean vehicle; mileage will be reimbursed for any trip outside of the City of Boulder.
