Full Job Description

If you would like the opportunity to direct a group of skilled adult musicians whose collective passion is to Make Music –Make Friends –Make a difference. Keep reading. You’d have the autonomy to build a three-performance concert season with a focus on finding diverse, inclusive, non-white-dead- men composers. If multi-media presentations are in your wheelhouse, this might be a good fit. The concert band has a long history of providing good musical presentations along with some form of audience “wow” engagement. Godzilla Eats Las Vegas by Whitacre, Alex Shapiro’s Lights Out, and Foundry by John Mackey were a few pieces that surprised and delighted our attendees. Foundry required the construction of four new, never been created, metal and aluminum percussion instruments. Our Movement for Rosa by Mark Camphouse featured a slide presentation depicting the life of civil rights icon Rosa Parks which was very moving for our audience and for members. Our last in person concert was titled “Let’s Play.” The multi-media, audience engagement, multi-faceted presentation was complete with problem solving clues throughout the concert. The event culminated with a member in the audience “solving the “Let’s Play” puzzle” and winning the grand prize. If creative programming and out-of-the-box thinking is your jam, keep reading. Rainbow City Performing Arts is 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization. We focus our efforts on providing a welcoming environment for LGBTQIA+ and allied artists, strengthening individual and ensemble performance skills, and supporting the greater LGBTQIA+ community throughout the Pacific Northwest in the fight for equality, acceptance, and justice. These objectives continue to serve as the foundation of the organization’s vision and mission. Stipend: $500 per month for 9 months per year (aspiring to add a summer term) Testimonials: “RCPA has become my ‘family of choice.’ I hadn’t touched an instrument in 30 years. This non-audition band welcomed me with open arms and this challenge: ‘Just play the notes you can.’ I was allowed to grow, as a musician, at my own pace.” – Pamela, percussion “The concert band has always been a place to learn in a comfortable supportive environment for me. I never had played a percussion instrument before joining and now I have over 10 years of experience and lead the section. I love the opportunities to reach far and work to play music at the highest levels. I’m excited to see what changed flavor to our performance and what experiences our new director will bring!” – Damien, percussion To view a detailed job description, qualifications, and application, please visit: https://links.rainbowcityband.com/Applicant-Packet-Concert-Band
