San Diego Symphony seeks an experienced Director of Production to lead the Production Department at two world-class venues: the Rady Shell at Jacobs Park, a newly opened state-of-the-art outdoor amphitheater, as well as Copley Symphony Hall at Jacobs Music Center, an indoor venue currently undergoing renovation. This position demands extensive leadership experience and skills including effective communication, conflict resolution, and modeling values that are inherent in the San Diego Symphony’s mission. These include accountability, integrity, and a commitment to the highest aesthetics in both the visual and aural aspects of a diverse production landscape. Creating innovative production processes and protocols for the new venue and an increasingly complex production environment are required duties of this position.


The Director of Production reports directly to the Vice President of Venue Operations, leading production budgeting, scheduling, and technical logistics for both venues. The qualified candidate will have robust knowledge and confidence interfacing with other departments including artistic, orchestra personnel, and operations. Experience supervising an IATSE crew is essential as well as negotiating a Collective Bargaining Agreement and implementing the guidelines of that CBA.
