Queensland Symphony Orchestra’s internship program is open to students from Griffith University Queensland Conservatorium and The University of Queensland.

Each semester eligible students have the opportunity to audition for an internship placement with the Orchestra, where they are coached and mentored by our musicians. They are provided with real life orchestral exposure and experience, enhancing their understanding of the life of an orchestral musician.

#Did you know?

Queensland Symphony Orchestra has been running the internship program since 2008.


Since that time over 143 students have taken part in our internship program.


Past interns now work with the organisation as casual musicians or as members of the admin team.
