Newport Music Festival seeks Development Manager


The Newport Music Festival (NMF) has played a significant cultural role in Rhode Island since its launch in 1969. In the years since, the Festival has produced more than 2,000 classical chamber music concerts in many of the Preservation Society of Newport County’s renowned Newport Mansions and in various venues throughout Newport. NMF has hosted more than 1,000 artists, including 130 American debuts of artists who have gone on to make musical history.

The last decade has brought a broadening of the Festival’s musical landscape. From Bach to Bernstein to world premieres by established and emerging composers, as well as rare discoveries of forgotten minor masterpieces, the Festival offers something for everyone, even those just looking for a magical experience in one of America’s most beautiful coastal cities.

The May 2017 arrival of Pamela A. Pantos as NMF’s new Executive Director heralds a new era for the organization as it anticipates the celebration of its 50th Anniversary Season in 2018.
