Internships Summer 2016:

This summer, the Los Angeles County Arts Commission is generously funding two full-time 10-week paid internships through their Summer Arts Internship Program. The program is open to all currently-enrolled undergraduates in LA County (both LA County students, and LA County residents).

The Programs Intern will write all program notes for the coming season. This exciting project is ideal for a student who excels at writing and research, and loves classical music.

The Public Relations Intern will develop copy for next season's press releases, season announcements, and more! This is the perfect job for an outgoing student with excellent communication skills and social media savvy.

If you or a student you know might be interested in either of these positions, read the full job descriptions and find the application instructions here!

Thank you to the Los Angeles County Arts Commission, and the
many wonderful interns who have worked with us over the years!
