EMERALD CITY MUSIC
Managing Director (Part-Time, 15-18 hrs/week)


Emerald City Music (ECM) is the Pacific Northwest home for eclectic, intimate, and vibrant classical chamber music experiences. Deemed "the beacon for the casual-classical movement" (CityArts), ECM hosts world-renowned musicians in unique concert experiences in Seattle, Olympia, and Bellingham WA as well as an annual concert in New York City, NY.

Emerald City Music is seeking a part-time arts professional to fill the role of Managing Director. This person is detail-oriented, and has proven success in a fast paced, innovative arts organization, and wants to be involved in the core functions of an organization: financial management, bookkeeping, fundraising, and operational tasks. This person is nimble, flexible, communicative, organized, a team player, curious and always wanting to learn.

Organization Description:
Founded in 2015, Emerald City Music is a startup nonprofit based in Seattle, Washington, currently preparing to celebrate its fifth anniversary season. The organization produces and tours six chamber music performances annually, with each tour visiting Seattle’s South Lake Union (415 Westlake, a chic contemporary venue with an open bar), Olympia’s Minnaert Center (a 495 seat modern concert hall), a once annual concert at the Bellingham Festival of Music, and an annual concert in New York City.

ECM gained recognition regionally and nationally as a major player in the chamber music scene. Artistic Director Kristin Lee –– a touring violinist awarded the Avery Fisher Career Grant and who is a member of the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center –– is regarded for her innovative programming that both honors the tradition of chamber music while expanding the genre’s boundary past common limits. Emerald City Music made a name for itself beginning in its second season with a national collaborative commission with Grammy-winning composer John Luther Adams, and has continued to press the boundary of chamber music with accolades like a tour of Steve Reich’s iconic and rare Music for 18 Musicians, a pitch-black performance of Georg Haas’s “In the Dark” quartet, and the West Coast debut of the Danish folk group The Dreamers’ Circus.

Emerald City Music operates with a small staff of three employees, alongside a crew of dedicated volunteers and two interns. Over 45 musicians visit our stages each year. ECM values engaged and passionate thinkers who work well in a remote team setting. This position is based in Seattle, but the team is located in Seattle, Olympia, and New York City.
