Association of British Orchestras

Orchestra Assistant & Music Librarian

Southbank Sinfonia £22,000 Closing date 14 October 2019
With its 40-week programme and more than 50 orchestral and chamber performances each year, Southbank Sinfonia is one of Britain’s busiest chamber orchestras. To achieve ambitious artistic plans each year, all activities require an excellent level of foresight, care and skill in planning and delivery. While the team collectively shares responsibility for ensuring everything runs effectively, the Orchestra Assistant and Music Librarian makes a vital contribution towards running all musical activities to the highest possible standard.

The Orchestra Assistant and Music Librarian has a wide range of responsibilities, making this the ideal role for someone looking to further their experience in classical music administration. They provide full support to the Orchestra Manager, sometimes deputising as required, working together to ensure the smooth-running of all rehearsal and performance activities. They also manage Southbank Sinfonia’s in-house Music Library, acquiring all chamber and orchestral music required, and play a central part in the co-ordination of auditions and interviews for each year’s new orchestra.

The closing date for applications is 11.00am on Monday 14 October 2019.
