The Jamestown Community Band, a small, community-based concert band is in search of a Musical Director/Conductor. The band has been in existence for more than 20 years, and is made up of 30-40 amateur musicians ranging in age from the young teens into the 80s. No auditions are required. The band plays about a dozen times a year, mostly from May through October in a mix of indoor and outdoor performances, including two parades. Most activities are in Jamestown.
The band is seeking an individual with a degree in music and experience in leading a band with players of varying abilities and ages. Marching band experience would be helpful, but is not absolutely necessary. This position is open as of April 15. Compensation is provided to the Musical Director/Conductor for all rehearsals and performances.
- The conductor rehearses the band once per week (with several breaks) throughout the year. Because of various commitments, not all musicians attend all rehearsals.
- The role of musical director consists of selecting pieces that are appropriate to the audience and are within the playing ability of the band. This is done in conjunction with senior members of the organization.
- The musical director will prepare programs and/or themes for performances which may incorporate other musical groups or ensembles within the band. Showmanship is an appreciated quality.
- The conductor should be comfortable working with and developing the talents of young players.
- Instrumentation in the band varies; therefore, the ability of the musical director to recruit players is greatly appreciated.
- Senior members of the band are typically responsible for logistics (set up, breakdown of rehearsals and performances), library functions, promotion of events, acquisition and maintenance of music and instruments, interaction with town officials and the community at large, etc.
- The Jamestown Community Band has been extremely fortunate to have had conductors/musical directors who have developed a positive, good-humored, and motivating atmosphere at both rehearsals and performances, while at the same time maintaining a level of musicianship expected by our audiences. Candidates should be able to demonstrate the capability to continue this practice.
