TCS Staff Conductor Search


Deadline for applications: CLOSED (ended November 1)


The Chelsea Symphony announces a search for a staff conductor and instrumentalist to join the orchestra’s roster. The initial appointment will be for a two-year term (September 2017 through June 2019), with the possibility of renewal for a continuing term. Responsibilities include: conducting on two concert series each season (one half program comprised of a new composition and concerti, and another half program of the conductor’s choice); developing educational programming in consultation with the Artistic Directors; 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. 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 conductorsearch@chelseasymphony.org. Finalists for the position will be invited to guest conduct and play in the orchestra on the January 27-28, 2017, concert series.
