St. Cecilia Concert Society seeks an enthusiastic, self-motivated individual to join the organization as Administrative / Communication Officer at our office in Halifax. St. Cecilia Concert Society is committed to giving citizens of Halifax opportunities to hear high-quality, live music performed by local, national and international classical artists. We do this by presenting concerts, events and educational initiatives in Halifax, while focusing on building and nurturing a strong community presence through these activities. We are committed to supporting young artists and composers and to providing opportunities for them as they establish their careers. Our concert presentations are innovative, diverse, and challenging and feature artists from many cultural backgrounds performing a broad repertoire of music.
 
The Administrative / Communication Officer will work with the board members to develop, organize, promote and deliver the concert series. This part-time position requires someone who has strong organizational skills, and can work independently to manage and promote the activities of the Society.
