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 work with 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

The intern will have the opportunity to create and distribute weekly guest artist itineraries and ground transportation schedules for all NSO guest artists during the term. The 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. Once trained, the Artistic Planning Intern will assist with rehearsal coverage each week and support at least two concerts per month, to be identified in advance with the intern supervisor. Under supervision, the intern will create, send, and monitor execution of all NSO chamber contracts, including performances on Millennium Stage, the Terrace Theater, and at Mount Vernon. The intern will assist the Artistic Department with various administrative tasks as assigned throughout the term.
