Permanent, part-time (22.5 hours per week, with additional hours during the Festival)
Deadline: 12 noon Monday 6 July 2020
The Music Programmer is a new role at Norfolk & Norwich Festival. In recent years, we have worked with Britten Sinfonia and Serious as Programme Partners to select and deliver the contemporary and classical music programmes. We have greatly appreciated these relationships but now wish to develop our expertise ‘in house.’
The new role is a significant opportunity to develop our music programme. We are interested in expanding our publicly sited music events, crossing boundaries and mixing genres, championing diversity and difference (Creative Case) within our classical music programme, and programming to reach new audiences while continuing to support our engagement with existing audiences.
This is a challenging role with an overview of all music at the Festival and we understand that we might not find one person with the full range of music knowledge and the professional contacts needed to deliver a world-class programme. Therefore, we are open to being flexible about the person or combination of people we appoint to the post. We will consider applications for all or part of the role in the following combinations/options:
A. One person, 0.6 part-time.
B. One person, 0.4 part-time supported by a consultant.
C. Two people, in a combination of either 0.4/0.2 or 0.3/0.3 part-time.
We will accept applications from individuals for the 0.6 or 0.4 post (Options A and B). At this stage we do not want to hear from individuals or organisations wishing to be considered as a consultant. We will also accept applications from two people as a ‘programming team’ (Option C).
