River Brass is searching for a music director for the 2023-24 season.
Note: This is a volunteer position, though a small monetary stipend of appreciation is usually awarded at the conclusion of the season. The entire ensemble is unpaid and plays purely for the enjoyment of making music together. River Brass is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
An ideal candidate should have significant experience in conducting brass instruments, high energy and enthusiasm, strong leadership skills, and commitment to maintaining a high level of playing and always seeking continuous improvement within the ensemble by regularly participating in contest events. The music director collaborates directly with our Board of Directors to set up scheduling and select repertoire. The music director is a non-voting member of the Board.
Knowledge and understanding of brass band instrumentation and brass band repertoire is preferred, but not required. Resources can be available to assist a new director with learning the brass band-specific nuances and selecting appropriate literature.
