Internship Opportunities

Eastern Connecticut Symphony interns are an essential part of our organization. We provide hands-on, professional experience to local students through our office. Interns work closely with professionals in areas such as operations, development, marketing, public relations, and arts education while participating in projects that allow them to apply academic knowledge and develop professional skills in a nonprofit environment.

The Experience

The Eastern Connecticut Symphony Orchestra is seeking apprentices with skills in communications, development, or theatre productions for their 2022-23 season to participate in and contribute to all facets of a nonprofit organization. The individual will have the opportunity to assist in engaging the Eastern Connecticut community in partnerships, providing fundraising support, and pursuing their professional interests through project-based learning at the Symphony. A musical background is not necessary to have a fulfilling experience with Symphony, however, an interest in arts would be advantageous.

The internship is a part-time (15-25 hours per week), unpaid opportunity intended to complement a student’s program of study or other employment. Some of the intern’s hours may involve nights and weekends. Upon acceptance, interns develop a personalized schedule with the Eastern CT Symphony Orchestra based on their availability. The internship is available over a three months period, beginning September through December,  February through May, and June through August.
