Jesus Christ Superstar seeking Orchestra Director!

We already have a Musical Director to handle the vocals of our performers. Now we need someone who will assume the responsibility of pulling our orchestra together and rehearsing them so that they are show ready in time for our performance run – March 27th to April 11th.

The Orchestra Director will work closely with the Musical Director (Vocal) to provide a unified musical direction for the show, with final determination on disparate issues being determined by the Director.

The Orchestra Director will not have to be present for the majority of rehearsals of the cast, just a few to make sure that orchestration and vocal lines are sympatico. They will solely be responsible for the band.

We don’t expect the orchestra to be in place until either January or February, but we want to secure our Orchestra Director before 2014 is out.

Front Row Centre expects the orchestra to rehearse once a week for approximately 10 weeks prior to the show opening. We’re hoping that the Orchestra Director will also lead the band once the show goes into performance. We also expect the orchestra to be present during tech week, starting Tuesday, March 24th or Wednesday, March 25th. Final tech week schedule to be determined.

Front Row Centre is a 100% volunteer run organization who are devoted to putting on quality musical theatre performances. Everyone involved is there because we love theatre and the chance to share it with our family, friends and community.

If you are interested in this position, please contact Janos Zeller at vicepresident@frontrowcentre.ca as soon as possible. If you know someone else who might be interested, please pass this information on to them.
