The Arapahoe Philharmonic, a community-based orchestra in Littleton, is seeking qualified applicants to serve as board members to join a dedicated team in the oversight and policy-making of a local cultural institution. Qualified individuals will have an appreciation for classical music, a commitment to music education and some understanding of the Denver area cultural scene, as well as professional experience in leadership, nonprofit administration, fundraising, marketing, strategic planning, law, finance, human resources, arts education, information technology and/or project management.
Board members serve 3-year terms and may serve two consecutive terms (six years) at which time a one-year break is required prior to resuming a board role. Board members direct the oversight, policy and fiscal accountability of the organization and have the opportunity to lead projects and head committees tasked with strategic goal accomplishments. There is a $500 minimum donation to serve on the board. Alternative avenues of service in lieu of a financial contribution can be discussed. The board meets monthly, with committee meetings, additional meetings or retreats scheduled as needed.
The Arapahoe Philharmonic has provided high quality classical music experiences to the south metro Denver community for 64 years. The orchestra comprises mostly volunteer musicians - doctors, lawyers, engineers, teachers - playing for the love of music with a core of compensated principal players to provide technical leadership and help ensure the quality of performance.
Interested parties should contact the Arapahoe Philharmonic office at 303-781-1892 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
