Music Director/Program Content Coordinator
Here at All Classical we’re in what some call the “slow summertime.” So much gets pushed to this time of year, between membership drives, board meetings and strategic planning. It just so happens to also coincide with everyone’s vacations. Good times! We also used the quietude to fill 2 open positions with great people. The future is shaping up.
Summers slow at your station? Or, busy by virtue of the catch-up-cram-as-much-in-as-you-can time of year. Good luck with that. And, as always let us know if you have opportunities at your station. We’ll do what we can on our end to get the word out.
