Hi there marketing pro! Cantabile—the most fun, welcoming, and well-fed choir in all of Colorado (you’ll find out what we mean…)—is looking to hire someone to support our marketing for the 2021-2022 season.

After a year+ of not being able to sing together we are excited to pick up where we left off. We need you to help us tell our story!

Before we get down to brass tacks, note that beyond skills and experience we are mainly looking for someone with a positive attitude who is excited to bring their ideas and creative juices to the table. We think this will be a great opportunity for the growing professional to flex their marketing muscles and help move the needle for an eager organization. So without further ado…

Cantabile, a local community choir based in Boulder, Colorado, seeks a contract Marketing Professional to support its promotional and communications efforts for the 2021-2022 concert season. The position is a year long commitment (while noting that it ebbs and flows with the concert season) to ensure a consistent presence. Experience working with arts non-profit organizations is desired but not required.

While this job description is written to give you a sense of what this role may entail, the exact responsibilities will ultimately be tailored to the person we hire. If your skills are close to what we are looking for, we encourage you to apply.

You will work closely with the Artistic Director, Brian Stone, and report to the Board. You will receive additional support and guidance from the Marketing Committee. Read here to learn more about Cantabile.
