About Norfolk Chamber Music Festival

Each summer, the 70 acre Stoeckel Estate, which was willed to Yale University in 1939 by Ellen Batell Stoeckel, hosts over 30 performances by world-famous chamber musicians, as well as 60 fellows from the Yale Summer School of Music. Featured artists include the Tokyo String Quartet, a group that has spent over 20 summers at Norfolk.

Interns have access to all concerts and amenities, including an art gallery, dining hall, laundry room, library, seminars and theater. Internships fall into two categories: administrative and recording/production. Administrative interns assist with the daily operation of the festival and the Yale Summer School of Music—handling clerical tasks, working at the box office, helping with marketing, publicity and special projects, and making arrangements for artists. Recording/production interns work in stage management, equipment management and preparations, assisting the concert hall manager, recording engineer and other staff members.


Unpaid: open to college juniors, seniors, graduate students and college graduates. Paid: open to applicants with a bachelor’s degree. Previous experience required for production manager, recording engineer and box office manager positions.
