Executive Director

Astral Artists, Inc.

Astral Artists is seeking a dynamic and innovative Executive Director to build on the extraordinary work that has been done on behalf of aspiring performing artists. Astral is a nonprofit intensive mentoring program that specializes in developing the early careers of extraordinary classical musicians. Our approach is forward thinking. We concentrate our resources on a small number of rising-star soloists and chamber ensembles with the potential to be change-makers and influencers. As a result, cohorts of artistic visionaries who leave our program are ready to build a future for classical music.

The ideal candidate will be an experienced and collaborative leader who has both aesthetic sensibilities, advocacy and management experience to lead this distinguished performing arts organization. The Executive Director must have the appetite to embrace the entrepreneurial spirit and have a vision for how to develop an organization that empowers aspiring performing artists to succeed in a competitive landscape. The successful candidate will have a distinguished record of leadership accomplishments and the relevant experience that would speak to the responsibilities of the role.
