Ever want to know how a symphony orchestra runs behind the scenes? Want more experience in the arts before you graduate? The Fort Bend Symphony Orchestra is looking for Part-time, Volunteer Interns for its 2012-2013 season! Take your first steps in arts management by learning with FBSO.
The Fort Bend Symphony Orchestra has been bringing classical music to the Fort Bend area for 21 years. It produces approximately six concerts a year, performing in the wonderful Stafford Centre, Sugar Land Town Square, and other venues. The musicians and staff are committed to making classical music available and accessible to all ages, fulfilling its mission, “Bringing Culture to Your Doorstep!”
We are looking for enthusiastic, energetic people to fill these positions:
Recruiting and Retention Coordinator: Help the FBSO find volunteer musicians who love to play!
Social Media Coordinator: Shout out the wonderful things happening at the FBSO through Facebook, Twitter, and other social media platforms.
Marketing and Media Assistant: Learn the basics of non-profit marketing campaigns while helping craft a strong brand image in the surrounding area.
Box Office Assistant: Learn to efficiently manage and run a box office before each performance, and help our dedicated patrons with their ticket purchases.
Customer Service Associate: Learn how to create and run fundraising events by helping with our Christmas Market and Silent Auction, as well as learn how to help patrons with their subscription questions.
Development Associate: Learn the intricacies of non-profit development by helping with donors, fundraising events, and mailings. Also, learn to write grants and create opportunities for other major donor events.
Full job descriptions can be found at www.fbso.org/interns. This is a part-time volunteer internship, so the schedule will be determined with consultation between the supervising area manager, internship coordinator, and the intern. These internship positions are appointments for the full 2012-13 season (running from August 2012 through July 2013), and all interns are required to attend and help during all of the concerts scheduled throughout the Season. This internship is unpaid, and does not constitute the promise of future work.
How to apply: Choose one or two positions that interest you the most. Attach a resume and a cover letter detailing why you would make a great addition to the FBSO family in the one or two positions that you have chosen, and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org by September 15, 2012. In the meantime, check out our website www.fbso.org for more information about the organization!
