Open Positions


Choral Arts interns become critical members of our administrative team as we create choral experiences that move people to find shared purpose, discover shared passion, and connect with the music within themselves.

They experience working at a small performing arts non-profit while gaining valuable skills and knowledge that are transferrable to a wide range of careers in the performing arts and beyond.

Internships are available in the following areas:

Artistic and Production:

Ensemble management, artist relations, library management, special events and trip planning, and concert and backstage management

Development (Fundraising):

Grant research and writing, annual fund administration, special event planning, donor relations, program development, and patron services

Marketing and Public Relations:

Event marketing, media relations, social media, graphic design, website development and analytics, email marketing, and patron services

Applications are accepted throughout the year for fall, spring, and summer internships. Custom programs that incorporate multiple departments will be considered.

Internships are primarily in-person with a hybrid on a case by case basis. Remote internships are not available at this time.
