The Lubbock Symphony Orchestra is invested in providing real-world experience to talented collegians from the campuses of Texas Tech University, Lubbock Christian University, Wayland Baptist University, or South Plains College. The LSO’s Inspiring Interns Program provides rewarding internships in Marketing and Graphic Design. The program offers hands-on work experience in a creative environment within the region’s largest cultural arts organization. Acceptance into the program is competitive and internships are compensatory. Interns contribute approximately 10 hours per week to the LSO. In some cases, this work may be used toward class credit. Information about upcoming LSO internships is listed below. More internship opportunities may be available; for information contact Amie Dean at 806.762.1688 or [email protected].
