Do you love free, live music? Do you love curating and creating original content? Do you want to gain hands-on experience communicating messages to the public on behalf of a national arts foundation? If so, join Levitt’s communications team this fall!
The Communications Department shapes the branding, marketing and communications strategy for the Mortimer & Mimi Levitt Foundation and Levitt Pavilion Los Angeles, also providing communications support for the Levitt AMP concert sites across the country, as needed.
The Fall Communications Intern will support Levitt’s internal and external communications for the national foundation—helping to build and strengthen internal processes while curating and creating original web and social media content to promote the 2019 Levitt AMP Grant Awards. This intern will also be assigned brand-building projects that tell the broader Levitt story.
The Levitt Foundation realizes its mission of community through music through two main programs: permanent outdoor Levitt music venues and the Levitt AMP [Your City] Grant Awards, an annual grants competition. In 2018, nearly 500 free Levitt concerts will be presented in 26 towns and cities across America, serving more than 700,000 people.
Permanent Levitt venues are located in cities as diverse as Los Angeles; Denver, Colorado; Westport, Connecticut; Bethlehem, Pennsylvania; Memphis, Tennessee; Arlington, Texas and Dayton, Ohio. With the exception of Levitt Pavilion Los Angeles, each permanent Levitt venue is programmed, managed and supported by its own 501(c)(3) Friends of Levitt nonprofit organization, presenting 50 free concerts every year. Due to accelerating interest from cities and engaged citizens, the Levitt network is growing. Developing Levitt locations across the country include Sioux Falls (opening 2019) and Houston (opening 2021), amongst other cities.
This year, 15 small- to mid-sized towns and cities are presenting free Levitt concerts through the Levitt AMP Music Series. 2018 locations include Chattanooga, Tenn.; Sheboygan, Wis.; Utica, N.Y.; Carson City, Nev.; and Middlesboro, Ky., to name a few. Each Levitt AMP winner presents 10 free concerts in a reimagined public space, bringing together people of all ages and backgrounds.
All Levitt concerts feature acclaimed, emerging talent to seasoned, award-winning artists in a broad range of music genres. Levitt’s family-friendly vibe and open green spaces attract people of all ages and backgrounds. Friends, neighbors, as well as those whose paths might not cross otherwise, gather to relax on the lawn or dance to the music. As an example of the high caliber talent presented across the Levitt network, the 2018 GRAMMY nominees included 15 artists who have performed on Levitt stages in recent years.
