Want to get a behind the scenes look at the inner workings of your local opera company?

Join Pensacola Opera by exploring the internship opportunities available in administration, marketing, production, and education. The staff strives to ensure that an internship serves to enhance the student’s educational experience and career development by providing credits towards your degree. All interns become integral members of the department(s) they work in and gain valuable experience while making professional contacts.

All internships are unpaid positions and housing is not included in the internship. Pensacola Opera will work with the student’s schedule and requirements to determine the length and hours of the internship.

To apply, please submit the following:

•  Cover letter indicating why you have an interest in working in the arts and specific areas you would like to learn more about (general arts administration, education, marketing and PR, etc.)

•  Résumé including present and permanent addresses, education, and work experience

•  One letter of recommendation from a professor, past intern supervisor, or other person with knowledge of your work ethic
