Opera San Luis Obispo   Contract Job ASSISTANT CONDUCTOR OPENING

Artistic Director and Conductor, Maestro Brian Asher Alhadeff is seeking an experienced young conductor who would benefit from a highly busy and versatile “Assistant Conductor” opportunity. Ideal candidates are hard working, enthusiastic, open-minded and flexible instrumental musicians, over the age of 21, with experience in some branch of conducting, and a sincere interest in learning the art of conducting, networking skills, and organizational and project management skills.

Applicants must be physically capable of lifting up to 50 lbs and hold a degree in some branch of conducting, and/or, currently enrolled in a conducting degree program. Only applicants that have a current U.S. drivers license, and have a working vehicle will be considered.

Assistant Conductor(s) will assist in staging rehearsals, outreach activities, assisting stage crew, event set-up and breakdown, and children’s matinees scheduled around several of these productions. Qualified candidates may also serve as cover conductor and be engaged in video taped full-orchestra opportunities.

Maestro Alhadeff says “…being a conductor is 99% what happens OFF the podium and therefore, the most beneficial aspect of this assistantship will be participating in, and absorbing valuable organizational and project management skills associated with producing and conducting a variety of large-scale classical performing arts concerts.”

Interested candidates should private message the OperaSLO FaceBook site with a brief message expressing interest, experience, and video links to conducting footage.
