Beethoven String Quartet Cycle Project/Program Manager
Chamber Music Tulsa

Posted 02/08/2016

Chamber Music Tulsa seeks to contract an experienced Program Manager who will take on the management of the “Beethoven Cycle” with the goal of delivering on time, within budget and within scope. The “Beethoven Cycle” project is the performance by the Miró String Quartet of all 16 string quartets composed by Beethoven. There will be six ticketed concerts over a ten-day period in February 2017, with additional related community outreach and social events. The contract will begin March 1, 2016 and conclude March 1, 2017.

The Beethoven string quartets are considered one of the greatest achievements of Western culture, alongside ancient Greek drama, the plays of Shakespeare, and the art of Michelangelo. Hearing them all together over a short span of time is like hiking the Appalachian Trail, seeing the entire Wagner “Ring” cycle of operas, reading the Lord of the Rings (or all of Harry Potter, even!). They speak to us about the power of the human spirit, and immeasurably enrich and change our lives.
