NYO-USA seeks a Conducting Apprentice, age 16-19. The conducting apprentice will have a unique opportunity to receive mentoring in orchestral conducting from NYO-USA’s music staff, including Orchestra Director James Ross, and the 2015 Assistant Conductor. S/he will attend all orchestra rehearsals during the Residency and tour with Charles Dutoit, as well as observe sectional rehearsals and faculty coaching. Some aspects of the apprenticeship may be tailored to the musical background of the student chosen, but it is expected that score study sessions and very limited podium time will be offered. The conducting apprentice is also expected to have a role in understanding and supporting orchestra operations for NYO-USA and may be asked to assist the Music Library staff or the management team with relevant administrative functions.

NYO-USA also seeks an assistant conductor to support the program’s orchestra director, James Ross; the instrumental faculty during the orchestra’s training residency; and 2015 conductor Charles Dutoit, both during the residency and on a concert tour of China. The assistant conductor will also have a significant role in mentoring NYO-USA’s conducting apprentice. Candidates ages 20–35 who are US citizens or permanent residents are encouraged to apply.
