Royal Northern Sinfonia is the chamber orchestra for the north of England. 60 years old in 2018 and with its Royal title for five years, the orchestra consists of 37 full time players, with titled conductors Music Director Lars Vogt, Principal Guest Conductor Julian Rachlin and Conductor Laureate Thomas Zehetmair. The orchestra gives ca. 95 concerts per year for a range of audiences, at its home and rehearsal base in Sage Gateshead and further afield. RNS tours locally, regionally and internationally and records and broadcasts regularly. To complement RNS’s performances at Sage Gateshead, a programme of classical music by visiting orchestras, choirs and soloists completes a rounded classical music offer for audiences in the North East.
As it approaches its 60th anniversary Royal Northern Sinfonia has been developing its work significantly. With a new Director, Thorben Dittes, RNS has increased its touring in the north and internationally and extended the nature of its activity to reach new audiences.
About the role
This role is a key support function in the classical team, and makes a great starter job for someone looking to build a career in orchestra management. All previous postholders have gone on to more senior positions at Sage Gateshead and in other classical music organisations.
The successful candidate will be able to demonstrate a keen eye for detail, as well as experience of managing and prioritising a complex administrative workload. An understanding of professional orchestral working practices will be key, as will self-motivation, and an appreciation of how each seemingly minor process or detail contributes to the successful delivery of a concert or performance.
