SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA COLLEGIATE AMBASSADORS
The Boston Symphony Orchestra Collegiate Ambassador program is a series of paid opportunities aimed primarily at Boston-area college students to provide logistical support and assistance to the BSO's Education and Community Engagement Department in the administration and execution of a variety of its programs over the course of the 2016-2017 concert season.
Typical responsibilities include providing general support as needed for Education and Community Engagement programs held at Symphony Hall or offsite. BSO Youth Concerts and Community Chamber Concerts are the programs that most consistently draw on the support of the Collegiate Ambassadors, but other programs in which Ambassadors have assisted in a variety of hands-on capacities include Symphony For Our City, Onstage at Symphony, and the BSO Concerto Competition. Participants will be compensated at an hourly rate and with a small travel stipend (as applicable).
Collegiate Ambassadors will:
- Provide support to BSO staff at select Education & Community Engagement Programs, especially the Community Chamber Concerts and Youth Concerts series
- Receive compensation based upon an hourly rate (and any necessary travel needs)
Participants must be enrolled in a Boston-area college. Students with access to transportation are encouraged to apply (for off-site program needs), and should be willing to carpool to and from events with other students in the program as needed. Participants must attend the September 30 Orientation session at Symphony Hall.
