Since 2003, Music@Menlo’s internship program has provided college students and recent college graduates the opportunity to learn what goes on behind the scenes at an internationally acclaimed music festival. Each summer, Music@Menlo hires approximately twenty interns to assist with all areas of the organization, including Merchandising and Sales, Development, Event Planning and Catering, Patron Services and Ticketing, Production, Artist Services, Student Services, Operations, and Photography and Videography. Music@Menlo interns are integral to the success of the festival. They work side-by-side with the festival’s staff and are highly visible members of the Music@Menlo team.
In keeping with Music@Menlo’s mission, a unique component of the internship program is a series of educational seminars on various topics including marketing in the arts, strategic planning for non-profit organizations, fundraising, and career planning and development. While primarily arts-focused, the main themes of these sessions apply across many disciplines.
Through project-based, hands-on work, the summer experience allows interns to learn skills in project management, customer service, organization, communication, and planning. Former interns have gone on to work in the field of arts management at such institutions as the San Francisco Opera, the New York Philharmonic, Carnegie Hall, Orpheus Chamber Orchestra, and the Metropolitan Opera Guild as well as other fields in both the for-profit and non-profit sectors.
Applications are now being accepted for the 2012 festival season. Internship dates vary but generally run June through August. Modest stipends are available to help offset personal expenses. Housing is not provided. Please visit www.musicatmenlo.org for complete descriptions and application form.
