Opportunities to Work With Our Team

The HSO is holding Spring auditions! Click here to learn more.

The Hartford Symphony Orchestra Internship Program provides a unique learning opportunity for college students and recent graduates interested in pursuing careers in performing arts administration. An internship with the HSO combines the practical application of collegiate studies with invaluable hands-on training and professional experience, and interaction with fellow interns and with staff allow for the creation of valuable contacts for the future.

All internships are unpaid. Candidates should be creative, detail-oriented and professional, and must have a valid driver’s license. Candidates are required to submit a writing sample with the application. Flexible hours, but may require some nights and weekends.

Recent graduates of the Hartford Symphony Orchestra’s Internship Program have gone on to careers at the Dallas Symphony Orchestra, Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, Bushnell Center for the Performing Arts and the Greater Hartford Arts Council. At the HSO, our goal is not only to provide a meaningful internship experience, but to assist in creating a pathway to employment for the next generation of arts administrators and artistic leaders.
