Engagement Manager for Music Education

Louisville Public Media seeks an Engagement Manager who is passionate about introducing children and families to classical music. 90.5 WUOL is more than a great way to listen to music. We believe music connects our community, inspires creativity, spurs student success and makes our city a better place to live.

  • Manage the Young Artist Competition, from booking judges and publishing competition guidelines to managing entries, answering questions and ensuring the competition runs smoothly
  • Help promote and integrate “The Music Box” into school curriculum
  • Envision and implement ways 90.5 WUOL can help parents and teachers in non-traditional education scenarios
