Who We Are

Pacific Symphony is the premier symphonic orchestra in Orange County, CA. Through exceptional musical performances, educational opportunities and community programming, Pacific Symphony inspires, engages and serves the Orange County community and Southern California region.

Like many nonprofit organizations, we need interns! We seek interns who are interested in giving back to the community while helping to spread the magic of orchestral music. Our interns enthusiastically advance the mission of Pacific Symphony through the contributions of their time, talent, resources, and ambassadorship. Our interns are the window to the Symphonic community and are a reflection of the diversity of interests and backgrounds that are found in Orange County.

We offer two types of internships: Educational interns participate through a formal educational training course associated with a university or college. Educational interns have a work plan in place that informs their assignment. Apprentice interns participate alongside a staff member to gain experience and develop skills in the field of arts administration.
