Lorelei Ensemble announces search for Operations Manager
Lorelei Ensemble, a dynamic and innovative professional women’s vocal ensemble, seeks an Operations Manager to oversee management and operations for the ensemble’s local and touring performance schedules. Overseeing the work of other paid and volunteer administrative staff, the Operations Manager will coordinate and manage all tasks related to marketing and communications, publicity, contracting, events, and educational/community outreach. Working together with the Artistic Director and Financial Manager, the Operations Manager will help to determine and maintain Lorelei’s six-figure annual operating budget. In addition to these responsibilities, the Operations Manager will also supervise Lorelei’s exclusive recording contract and will coordinate and provide necessary production support for the ensemble’s national touring activities, self-produced concerts, and artistic residencies.

A passion for and an ability to articulate Lorelei’s unique mission and vision are crucial to success in the role. Equally important is a collegial working style and passion to be involved on all levels of organizational activity.
