    Title: Executive Director

    Status: Half to two-thirds time position, salaried, with the opportunity to transition to full-time given successful completion of strategic initiatives.

    Compensation: $45-55,000competitive; commensurate with experience. 

    Location: Prefer that applicant be resident or willing to relocate to New Orleans. Other situations may be considered.

    Start-Date: May/June 2022

    Organization Summary

    Birdfoot Festival was founded on the principle that the dynamic musical culture of New Orleans—characterized by intimate music venues with casual atmospheres yet an engaged listening culture—has something to offer that the future of classical music needs. Birdfoot provides time and space for artists to do their best work, and then brings musicians and audiences together to share meaningful musical experiences.

    Recognized for its fresh approach and “youthful, rule-bending style” (The Times-Picayune), Birdfoot is recognized in New Orleans and beyond for its creative programming, its collaborative and musician-responsive ethic, and its diverse audiences. Since its founding in 2011, the Birdfoot Festival has grown rapidly: the festival has presented more than 160 concerts and events, and the 2019 season featured eighteen public offerings, including twelve concerts in addition to lectures, symposia, and other supporting events. In 2021, Birdfoot produced an interactive digital season modeled after the festival’s signature “Birdfoot Backstage” that attracted audience members from across the country and three continents.

    In addition to concerts and events, Birdfoot’s programs include an award-winning Young Artist Program, occasional Artist Residencies, and an online calendar of musical events in partnership with New Orleans Public Radio. Contrary to industry stereotypes, Birdfoot audiences often skew young (~55% between ages 18-55) and turn out for adventurous programming. At recent festivals, 10% of audience members were attending their first chamber music concert.

    Birdfoot’s mission is to empower artists, inspire audiences, and upend expectations.

    Position Summary

    The Executive Director will join Birdfoot Festival at a pivotal moment in the organization’s development. In the 10 years since its founding, Birdfoot Festival has grown into a visionary chamber music festival with strong local roots and international recognition. The Executive Director will play a key role in the festival’s next chapter, as Birdfoot navigates the retirement of the festival’s founding Executive Director and the post-pandemic world. Birdfoot’s next Executive Director will work closely with the Artistic Director and the Board to continue the festival’s tradition of thinking boldly about the role of chamber music and musicians in the life of the New Orleans community, maintain Birdfoot’s unique spirit and values, while helping the organization develop a stable funding base and transition to a professional administrative structure. This position will also take a lead role in development of the festival’s next five-year strategic plan, providing big-picture leadership in partnership with the Artistic Director towards Birdfoot Festival’s continued growth and success as an innovative organization.

    The Executive Director leads, supervises, and oversees the administrative, marketing, and production aspects of the Birdfoot Festival. These include, but are not limited to, fundraising, financial management, marketing, Board relations and development, festival production, and day-to-day operations. Moreover, the Executive Director works closely with the Artistic Director to ensure the festival’s continued relevance and responsiveness to the community, and to support and implement festival programming and planning. This position reports to the Board of Directors and works closely with Board members, providing support for Board committees, and participating on committees as needed. The Executive Director additionally supervises one to three part-time administrative, marketing, & production staff members on a seasonal basis and oversees the recruitment and coordination of volunteers.

    The ideal candidate will bring a track record in producing/managing projects or organizations of comparable purpose and/or similar complexity, and will bring an ability to communicate powerfully about music and the festival’s vision.
