The Virtual Orchestra combines digital and virtual reality installations; schools, community and family workshops; a fringe programme and live performances; all outside traditional concert hall venues. The Project is being delivered across the Philharmonia’s four year-round residencies. In year 1 delivery is in Bedford (July & August, 2018) and Leicester (October & November, 2018). We are happy to consider candidates who might only be able to undertake the role for one of the two project locations in year 1. We are also interested in candidates who would also be open to undertaking this role in one or more of the locations across both years of the project (Canterbury: March & April 2019 / Basingstoke: June & July 2019).
This role involves acting as the first point of contact for people entering The Virtual Orchestra, ensuring that it is adequately resourced and supervised, and is safe and technically operational. A professional, welcoming and informative approach is vital to ensuring high quality engagement for audiences and participants. The principal aim of the project is to attract a new and more diverse audience for our programme in these locations. This role is central to shaping audiences' first orchestral experiences.
The role requires someone with strong organisational and communication skills and the ability to foster excellent customer relations.
