NSO Artistic Planning Intern

Department description

The NSO Artistic Planning team programs the NSO’s performance season and manages the experience of every guest artist appearing with the NSO. We are looking for a committed individual who is excited to assist world-class musicians from a variety of countries, backgrounds, and musical genres. Our ideal intern is detail-oriented, an excellent communicator, and feels at home in a fast-paced work environment.

Project description

Intern will create and distribute weekly guest artist itineraries and ground transportation schedules for all NSO guest artists during the term. This may include direct communication with artist managers to confirm artist travel plans, hotel requests, artist pickup times, and other schedule-related information.

Intern will be available to guest artists during rehearsals and performances, acting as the first point of contact for guest artist needs. This may include dressing room setup and tear-down, minor hospitality shopping, delivering ticket orders to the box office, and calling the artist to the stage for a rehearsal or performance. Intern will keep the NSO Orchestra Planning and Administration System (OPAS) updated as instructed by supervisor. Tasks include guest artist entry, address book maintenance, and Conductor Information Form report generation.
