Assistant Conductor

If interested, more info below!


Assistant Conductor - Westport Community BandThis is an opportunity to work with the band, conduct one piece at most major concerts, and lead some of the small-group performances the band undertakes as part of its community outreach/fundraising efforts. While the Board and Associate Conductor Emeritus will be active in organizing the small-group performances, a candidate who can shoulder some of the responsibility for recruiting, repertoire, rehearsals, etc. for these performance is preferred.

The ideal candidate is a band member in good standing, has significant conducting experience, has the time/energy to commit to this role.  There is no fixed term for this position. We do ask that candidates commit to serving for at least two years.
Those interested in applying should: Let Sal LaRusso know/share your credentials with him.> Prepare an audition piece of your choosing to work through with the band.
Auditions will take place in mid- to late-October. The band will be asked to submit feedback on each candidate. The ultimate selection will be made by Sal and the Board.  Ideally, this role will be filled by mid-November. 

Thanks all!

Marcia
