Each summer, we invite two interns to work for our organization. Tasks include learning about development, event planning, stage production, patron services, merchandising, publications, operations, and student services.

Through on-the-job training and hands-on experience, our interns gain practical experience in the basics of arts administration. Interns work side-by-side with the institute’s staff, and are highly visible members of the ICI team.

College credit, work study, independent study, and cooperative learning programs may be available through your college or university. Participants may arrange for academic credit through their school, if desired.

Interns will have access to all concerts and classes subject to availability and scheduling demands.
