Music Co-op Stories
Northeastern music students are not always on the stage. Music industry students help behind the scenes dealing with arts administration, legal issues, and online media technologies.
Lydia Yenser, Class of '22
Lydia has dreamed about working in the music fine arts on the administrative side of the house. She’s gotten the chance with her first co-op at the Boston Symphony Orchestra. Lydia is in charge of helping patrons with donations, and in charge of all the volunteer services hired and scheduled to work.
“I think the most fun part is seeing all of your hard work come to fruition.”
