Community Engagement Intern
June 2018 - August 2018
Ann Arbor, MI
“This position allowed me to interact with the Ann Arbor and Southeast Michigan community. I was able to engaged citizens of all ages. I ran Instrument Petting Zoos across Ann Arbor and the surrounding area. This allowed me to help children, teens, and adults learn how to play instruments that they had never tried before. It was a very rewarding process and I enjoyed being able to be out in the community creating a welcoming environment full of smiles and laughs all through sharing a love for music. I was also able to do office work for the Ann Arbor Symphony Orchestra which allowed me to learn more about what it takes to run an amazing non-profit locally based symphony orchestra. I learned about orchestra librarianship and library processes, marketing, and production.”
