Employment & Auditions


Illinois Philharmonic Orchestra is not currently hiring.


Illinois Philharmonic Orchestra is currently seeking interns for our summer music series. Go behind the scenes and learn the basics of working for a performing arts organization in Concert Operations, Box Office Management, Marketing and Finance. IPO interns receive hourly pay with both remote and onsite work. Internship opportunities are available to high school students residing in the south/southwest suburbs. Interested parties should email a letter of interest and a resume with relevant school/work experience to IPO Executive Director Christina Salerno at csalerno@ipomusic.org.


Though all auditions are still currently on pause, we anticipate IPO auditions to commence once again in Spring of 2022.

For any further inquiries, please contact Phillip Serna at personnel@ipomusic.org.

One IPO’s priorities are to build an inclusive artist community and as such we are committed to EDI (equity, diversity, and inclusion) work and reimagining a new orchestral collective of today. We are proud to support The National Alliance of Audition Support (NAAS) as an Orchestra Partner. NAAS is an unprecedented national initiative to increase diversity in American orchestras. It will do so by offering Black and Latinx musicians a customized combination of mentoring, audition preparation, financial support, and audition reviews. Learn more at www.auditionalliance.org
