I worked at Chicago Symphony Orchestra as an intern (Less than a year)
-Being able to work for a world-renowned institution. -Working with staff members who are both amazing professionals and individuals. The musicians are also very cool! -Excellent work-life balance--it is a very relaxed, friendly environment. -Great resume item if you are going into non-profit/performing arts field. -Free tickets to concerts. -Learn a lot from everyone--whether from associates to VPs.
-Unpaid internship. -Could be tedious if you don't go out and ask for projects. Get the most out of it! -From my standpoint as an intern, I thought there was very small room for promotions to advance.
Advice to Management
-Everyone in Chicago knows the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, so use that brand recognition to attract top collegiate talents as interns. Paid internships can definitely help to do that.
