Work In The Music Department
The Department, on occasion, may have openings for student positions within the department: office workers, music library, and ushers / stage crew. Ushers / stage crew put in the majority of their hours on evenings and weekends according to their availability.
Due to budgetary constraints, we attempt to hire the majority of our student workers from those who have been awarded work study money.
