Be part of a small team at this dynamic arts organization, dedicated to furthering the art of ensemble singing and working with a highly respected vocal ensemble that has moved and delighted Chicago audiences for thirty years.

In this multi-faceted role, you will spearhead education and community engagement programs, as well as carry out all production and artistic administrative duties for concerts and events. The position includes concert production, stage management, music library, and program evaluation. Some specific responsibilities include scheduling rehearsals and auditions; contracting singers and other artists; transporting materials and equipment to all events; interfacing with production vendors; ordering, distributing and filing musical scores; and handling licensing, logistics, and travel arrangements for concerts and events.

  • Strong interpersonal skills, forging positive, collegial and effective relationships with people in a wide variety of roles
  • Strong written and oral communications skills, with solid attention to detail
  • A highly flexible and team-oriented approach, with a patient and good-humored outlook

Additional experiences that would add value, but are not required:
