The Chelsea Symphony announces a search for a conductor and instrumentalist to join the orchestra’s roster in the 2012-13 season. Responsibilities include conducting on two concert series (one half program comprised of a new composition and concerti, and another half program of the conductor’s choice) and performing as an orchestral instrumentalist on a minimum of four concert series each year. The successful candidate will demonstrate exceptional musicianship as a conductor and instrumentalist; a commitment to TCS’s collaborative ethos; and the potential to develop new audiences and partnerships. Residency in the greater New York City area is preferred. This is an unpaid position, although TCS does occasionally perform paid engagements in addition to our regular concert series.
Interested individuals should submit a letter of interest, a current résumé, and web links for conducting videos (rehearsal footage preferred) to firstname.lastname@example.org. Application deadline: September 14, 2012. Finalists for the position will be invited to conduct a piece and play in the orchestra on the October 26-27, 2012 concert series.
