By | Published on Monday 3 December 2018

Phliharmonia Orchestra

Widely acclaimed for its pioneering approach to the role of an orchestra in the 21st century, the Philharmonia Orchestra leads the field in the quality of its playing and in its innovative work with residencies, music education, audience development and the use of new technology to reach a global audience. Its relationships with the world’s most sought-after artists, most importantly its Principal Conductor and Artistic Advisor Esa-Pekka Salonen, place the Philharmonia at the heart of British musical life.

The Philharmonia is looking to develop its online learning profile and offer for young people, students and teachers, building on its significant reputation and existing catalogue in this field. As such, we are recruiting a new role to work across the Digital and Education teams to research, develop and produce content.

The role will work across three key areas:

1. CONTENT PRODUCTION: The Philharmonia Orchestra has recently entered into a pilot agreement with an Online Education partner in China, with a view to providing educational video content in the area of Orchestral Music. This will range from listening and instrument guides, to in-depth video content covering specific repertoire or historical periods. The project also calls for the production of written material to accompany the films we will produce. Content production will be the main focus of the role during the first 6 months as we aim to reinforce this new relationship and deliver the initial batch of content to our Chinese partners. It will continue to form a core part of the role should the partnership continue.

2. RE-PACKAGING: The Orchestra will own the raw footage from the new content produced for the Chinese market and plan to re-package this content for the UK education market.

3. CONTENT DEVELOPMENT AND STRATEGY: The Philharmonia Orchestra, as part of its wider commitment to use digital technology as an effective way of reaching children and young people, is looking to integrate digital content across more of its education and outreach programmes, with the potential to offer young people the opportunity to create their own content.

The Digital Engagement Producer will lead on the research, planning and delivery of the aforementioned content over the course of the next 12 months, working across the Digital and Education teams. This may involve working with and coordinating freelancers such as camera operators, sound engineers, editors and education content specialists contributing to the material.
