|Performance Job Listing - NYC - ASSISTANT MUSICAL DIRECTOR/PIANIST|
|Performance Job Listing - New York, NY - Accompanist for Weddings in NYC/Hudson Valley/Westchester|
We are a newly formed sister vocal duo (each having 15+ years of experience in classical singing) based in NYC specializing in classical/opera for wedding ceremonies and receptions.
We are seeking classically trained pianists/organists who are open to collaborating for wedding gigs in the NYC area (5 boroughs) and Hudson Valley/Westchester, and most importantly, who have the availability to play for Friday/Saturday weddings (in addition to other days of the week) within the 2017-2018 wedding season, and who can rehearse on a continual basis throughout the year.
We are focusing on wedding ceremony music to begin (examples include the various arrangements of Ave Maria, Panis Angelicus, The Flower Duet from Lakmé, The Prayer, Con Te Partiro, O mio babbino caro, Laudate Dominum, Bellini / Donaudy art songs, Bist du bei mir, Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring, Ave Verum Corpus, etc) then expanding into reception music which would include light musical theater, Gershwin and Cole Porter standards, classic love ballads, Karen Carpenter, etc.
There may also be the possibility of your own solo playing if a couple requests additional solo piano music, however that is not the focus of our group.
It would be a plus if you own a keyboard that is suitable for transport, and if you have a car.
Due to schedule complexity we are building a list of "go-to" pianists that we can call upon, so we are not necessarily seeking a permanent member of the group, though if that were to occur, we'd be pleased.
We are also in the planning stages of filming a promotional video seeking a pianist to play during filming.
If interested in any of the above, in your response please provide the following in the form of a website link or an accessible attachment:
-Two contrasting audio clips of your classical playing
-Two contrasting audio clips of your accompanying classical vocalists
-A performance bio, resume and headshot
-A description of your experience playing for weddings and/or holy services, if any
-Two references with contact information
-A prepared/estimated requirement of salary for an hour of accompanied ceremony music (including travel, performance, rehearsal logistics), this would be adjusted slightly according to booking preferences/needs
-The location of where you are based
-Your preferred availability for rehearsal throughout the year
-Dates you are NOT available for weddings between 2017-2018
Thank you for your consideration, and we look forward to hearing from you!
