The Boulder Philharmonic Orchestra hosts a robust internship program with a highly acclaimed regional professional orchestra, providing learning opportunities in all areas of operations. We are currently accepting applications.
Interns are directly involved in many aspects of operations and work alongside experienced professionals, community members, and a network of arts leaders within the Boulder cultural community. Working in a smaller nonprofit setting both allows and requires interns to be flexible and work within multiple departments. As part of the Phil team, an intern gains solid professional skills while facilitating the day-to-day work at the Boulder Phil. Interns leave the Phil with high quality, professional experience on their resumes and the knowledge and confidence to work successfully in arts administration. Examples of internships include but are not limited to:
Development/Marketing Intern (Fall-Spring):
Special events: Assist with planning and implementation of our annual Boulder Phil Fanfare and other smaller fundraising events and recitals throughout the year. Research and maintain files on current and potential sponsors.
Grant proposals: Assist in writing/editing/submitting grant applications to foundations, government, or corporate funding sources.
Donor relations: Assist Director of Development in writing/sending direct mail solicitation and acknowledgment letters.
Donor prospecting: Conduct background research on potential or current donors (foundations, corporations, and individuals).
Marketing/Audience Development: Conduct grassroots marketing to local groups and student populations, write copy, create and edit website and e-newsletter content.
Ideally, this individual will spend an entire production season with us (September through April), averaging 10 hours a week with flexible scheduling.
Administrative Intern (Fall-Spring):
Marketing & Outreach: Assist with online calendars, mass mailings, proof-reading, market research and promotions.
Patron Relations: Assist with ticketing, database updates, and outreach to social service agencies.
Operations: Maintain recording archive, update repertoire history, and prepare and submit reports for music licensing.
Ideally, this individual will average 10 hours a week during the summer months with flexible scheduling.
For all internships, we seek people with positive attitudes and a willingness to learn. Strong writing, interpersonal skills and attention to detail are required. Experience with Microsoft Excel and Word required; HTML and graphics programs a plus. At the end of the experience, the intern should have a good idea of many of the working aspects in a dynamic, hard-working non-profit organization. Interns are generally recent graduates, current graduate students, or career changers. Individuals who have recently completed internships with the Boulder Phil have moved on to full-time employment in arts management, graduate school, or careers in teaching and performing. If interested, please send your resume to email@example.com.
