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.
