Grant Writer

There are grants available from local organizations, such as the St. Johns Cultural Council, The St. Augustine Beach Civic Association, or the Jacksonville Community Foundation.  The Grant Writer would identify and apply for appropriate funding from local foundations.


The Librarian would be responsible for the management, distribution and maintenance of the organization's music.  In addition to maintaining the music currently owned by the organization, the librarian would work with the Artistic Director to identify sources where music could be borrowed or rented.

Orchestra Manager

The Orchestra Manager serves as the liaison between the Artistic Director and the students and families.  A strong communications role, the Orchestra Manager would help to answer questions and disseminate information, as well as providing feedback to the Artistic Director from the participants.

Piano Accompanist

Piano Accompanist to assist the Artistic Director during Summer Music Camp and during weekly rehearsals as required (to be determined).
