Job: Arts Administrator

Death of Classical, based in New York City, is an award-winning classical music and opera concert presenter and producer, committed to new life to the performing arts by creating unique and unexpected concert experiences. One of the most talked-about organizations in the industry (read about us in Forbes, The New York Times, Vogue, NPR, and hundreds more), we currently produce two series – one in a Crypt in Harlem and the other in a Catacomb in Brooklyn – with programs ranging from chamber music to fully-staged opera, music from the Baroque and earlier through to contemporary (with numerous world premieres under our belt already). We’re passionate about creating a better, more exciting experience around classical music through our carefully curated combination of venues, programs, artists and pre-concert receptions that feature wine and whiskey tastings, among other things.

Death of Classical has recently transitioned to a full 501(c)3 non-profit status, and is in need of a full-time Arts Administrator to help run the show alongside Founder and General & Artistic Director Andrew Ousley. This role would be responsible for a huge swath of activity, including (but not limited to): artistic planning and curation, marketing, ticketing, social media, publicity, fundraising and development, partnerships, concert production management, general administration, and more.

The ideal candidate is someone who’s passionate about classical music and the performing arts, loves arts administration with a fiery passion, and is ready to dive headfirst into a role that will be a massive learning experience, as well as a chance to shape the future of the art form with one of the most exciting organizations in the performing arts industry.

This is a full-time position with salary and benefits commensurate with qualifications and experience.

• Education & Experience – Ideally a Master’s degree in Arts Administration, but a Bachelor’s degree plus minimum two years of relevant experience is also acceptable.
• A passion for classical music and general aesthetics
• Knowledge of Classical Music and Opera
• Adaptability, and a desire to learn new skills
