Purdue Convocations is a leading multi-disciplinary performing arts presenting organization. While proudly affiliated with Purdue University, Purdue Convocations supports itself through ticket sales, individual and corporate contributions, foundation and government grants, endowment income, and proceeds from benefit events. Purdue Convocations offers approximately 30 performances (August through May) each season by top-ranking international artists including symphony orchestras, dance and theater companies, and a wide array of chamber music ensembles, solo recitalists, jazz artists, world music artists, opera, choral groups, and special attractions performed in multiple University and community venues.
Internships provide experience to students who have an interest in the related fields of arts administration. All interns, whether unpaid or paid as a part of the government work-study program, make a commitment to work an average of ten hours per week. Interns will receive valuable experience and contacts in many fields of the performing arts, and tickets to most Purdue Convocations performances.
Internships will begin mid-August 2017
