A new partnership between Carthage College and the Kenosha Symphony Orchestra will provide students with experience while updating the orchestra’s brand.

Through a grant obtained by the college, two full-time, paid internships with the orchestra were set up to teach students about music performance, arts administration and public relations and marketing. Two, part-time internships also were established through Carthage.

“It’s important for the orchestra to collaborate with other organizations, and Carthage seemed like the perfect fit because it has such strong programs and resources,” said Sarah Gorke, executive director of the Kenosha Symphony Orchestra.

The three-month internships will involve working with social media, grant writing and helping with the orchestra’s re-branding process.

“When I first came on board, I surveyed specific members of the community to understand where the symphony was sitting in terms of brand in the community, and one thing that became apparent to me was that it needed an update,” Gorke said. “So we’re coming up with a fresh look with the new insight.”

The partnership also will focus on developing educational programming for audiences in partnership with the Carthage music department.
