Help coordinate Northrop noon concert series next summer

'Summer Cultural Programs' is an umbrella name for cultural arts programming during the Summer Term. Administered by the Office of Evening Classes and Summer Session in cooperation with the Department of Concerts and Lectures, this program provides support for the various organizations that sponsor cultural arts events on campus.

The centerpiece of the program is the noon concert series held almost daily on Northrop Plaza during Summer Term.

Summer Cultural Programs, because of its funding source in Student Services Fees, requires student guidance through this important committee and offers valuable experience for students' resumes.

The time commitment for committee members is approximately eight to ten one-hour meetings, and some correspondence via e-mail, between November 2009 and July 2010. Responsibilities include developing and presenting a funding request to the Student Services Fees Committee for summers 2011 and 2012, advising on funding allocations and programming, assisting in promotional planning and distribution of marketing materials for the Summer at Northrop concert series, and program evaluation.

Interested students are invited to contact Sarah Cook in the Office of Evening Classes and Summer Session by e-mail at konk0013@umn.edu. Questions are welcome. The first meeting will be held in November 2009 at a time and location to be determined by participant availability.
