Philharmonia Student Ambassador Scheme available for application

Two De Montfort University Leicester (DMU) students have a unique opportunity to work as Student Ambassadors for the world renowned Philharmonia Orchestra.

In December 2016, DMU signed a partnership with the London based Orchestra and for the second consecutive year will provide this exciting initiative for DMU students.

 Philharmonia Ambassadors

The Orchestra’s home is Southbank Centre’s Royal Festival Hall where it presents over 50 performances each year. It also has six other residences across the UK- including Leicester.

Performing seven concerts in a year at Leicester’s De Montfort Hall, DMU is the Orchestra’s Principal Partner in the city.

The Philharmonia’s Student Ambassador Programme connects DMU students with the Orchestra’s management team.

The ambassadors will promote the Orchestra’s concerts and student offer on campus and in exchange receive a welcome pack, complimentary tickets, access to rehearsals, personal briefings with senior staff and invitations to function events at Leicester’s De Montfort Hall.

Tim Woodall, Philharmonia Marketing Director, said: “The Student Ambassadors programmes is a great example of the productive relationship between the Philharmonia Orchestra and De Montfort University.

“The Orchestra benefits from the energy, ideas and enthusiasm of students, while we aim to share learning and insights from inside one of the world’s greatest Orchestras.”

This is any opportunity for students looking for work experience whilst studying and for those interested in pursuing a career in arts management.

To apply, simply send over a short coverall email to Celine Silvius, Music Project Coordinator, by Friday 13 October.
