The Lakes Area Music Festival employs a small year-round staff with expanded opportunities for seasonal (summer) employment. When there are vacant positions to apply for they will be listed here.


With the exception of its fellowships and training programs, the Lakes Area Music Festival does not hold auditions. Our roster is contracted through networking, with current musicians offering recommendations as needed. If you are interested in joining us the best way is to find a current artist and have them submit your name and resume. If you do not know anyone on our current roster you may submit your resume and recorded materials to one of our artistic directors:
