Los Angeles, CA
Overtone Industries aims to create timeless, original opera and music theater, with artists chosen not only for their high levels of artistic integrity, but for their wisdom and ability to translate personal understanding into mythic imagery and language. We work with a vibrant extended family of artists who share a compassionate sensitivity to the drama, delight, and absurdity of the human condition. Overtone Industries is committed to an in-depth artistic development process, and collaborates with multiple composers, librettists, performers, and visual artists allowing each project the time it needs to fully develop and come into fruition.
Overtone seeks an energetic administrative leader to ignite the overall management and running of the company. The Managing Director will participate in development and implementation of plans for the organization’s growth with productions locally, nationally, and internationally and lead fundraising efforts to support a business infrastructure that is as vital as the original art we create.
This is a contractor position for an average of 18 hours a week. The Managing Director will report to and work closely with the Artistic Director, O-Lan Jones, and consult with the Producing Director, Michelle Magaldi.
