Summer Creative Arts Jobs

Conductors

Conductors join us on a rotating basis, thereby offering students exposure to the diverse experience, training, interpretation, and national musical traditions of each conductor. A conductor typically is at the program for one week, with daily rehearsals culminating in a weekend performance. Conductors are hired to direct Symphony Orchestra and Chorale.

Faculty

Faculty are required to arrive on campus July 14, 2018 and will depart July 29, 2018.

Many symphony orchestras and professional choirs sponsor side-by-side programs, typically lasting for a three-hour rehearsal. Similarly, students at our program benefit from over six contact hours per day with their teachers. It is the unusually large amount of time that our students are exposed to high caliber professionals that makes the side-by-side experience at the Creative Arts program so profound.

The majority of our faculty and conductors have been working together each summer for a number of years. They continue their association with each other for two reasons: their respect for each other and a shared passion for teaching. The faculty currently performs with symphony orchestras and/or teaches at universities and conservatories. They have trained at The Juilliard School, The Curtis Institute of Music, Eastman School of Music, Yale and The Royal Academy of Music (England), to name a few.

Throughout the summer, teachers perform in recitals, coach chamber groups, and play side-by-side with students in large ensembles. This extensive contact provides students with excellent professional role models. These talented teachers are not only valuable resources; they become lasting friends and mentors who help guide students’ careers.

Resident Assistants

Resident Assistants (RA) come from leading universities and conservatories, where they are pursuing careers in the arts. They share their knowledge and talents, perform alongside students and faculty, contribute fresh ideas from their studies at universities and conservatories around the world, and provide extensive supervision for the residential community both in the dormitories and during all student activites. Above all else, they are committed to helping every student achieve a satisfying artistic, social, and residential experience while at our Creative Arts programs.
