Inside the Orchestra is currently recruiting for three (3) section violin vacancies in the Tiny Tots orchestra – including Concertmaster for all Inside the Orchestra programs.
About Us: Inside the Orchestra (IO) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. IO brings music to children, cultivating music appreciation and enhancing their education through engaging, interactive experiences with orchestral music. IO is the only professional orchestra in the country focused solely on children, and takes pride in bringing relevant, immersive, and innovative music programming to children in a variety of ways. IO provides in-person programs that are open to the public and in-schools throughout the metro Denver school system. The majority of our in-person programs take place in the morning. Learn more about our mission and values and our commitment to diversity, equity, inclusion, and access.
Performers are expected to rehearse and perform to a high standard as a member of IO and represent the organization as both advocates and role models before, during and after the programs. As an educational organization, a key component of our work is giving musicians face-to-face time with children. It is the responsibility of all performers to help our guests enjoy the highest quality experience we can provide. Engaging with children and their parents, teachers and guardians in a positive and educational manner, is an essential part of the program.
Trial Period: All musicians hired at Inside the Orchestra are given a one-year trial period in the orchestra, after which a determination will be made about their tenure.
These are per-service positions, with no guaranteed number of services. In a typical year, Tiny Tots will include approximately 20-30 services, with an additional 5-10 rehearsal dates. These numbers are currently reduced due to COVID.
