Requisition Number: JPF04586 Recruitment Period Open May 10th, 2019 through Saturday, Jun 15, 2019 at 11:59pm (Pacific Time) If you apply to this recruitment by June 15th, 2019, you will have until June 19th, 2019 to complete your application. Description
The UCLA Department of Musicology invites applications for a part-time lecturer position as Director of the UCLA Early Music Ensemble in Fall, Winter and Spring quarters of the 2019-20 academic year. Salary commensurate with applicant qualifications and experience.
The UCLA Early Music Ensemble looks at and beyond the Western European canon and its dominant practices: recent programs have explored Appalachian roots music, the influence of prosody on musical rhythm (ranging from Renaissance villancicos to hip hop), the music of Bach's lesser-known contemporaries, European musical imaginings of the New World; etc. Professional and amateur music-making are integrated through a collaborative, communitarian leadership ethic. EME is one of a small number of standing ensembles within the UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music that actively integrate performance majors, non-Music majors, and volunteer (non-UCLA) musicians from the larger LA community.
Ensemble Director responsibilities include:
advertising and holding auditions
conceiving and researching concert programs based on available personnel (normally 3/yr)
setting quarterly rehearsal schedules
coaching and leading concerts
supervision of a TA
organizing occasional guest artists for workshops
coordinating with the School of Music's Instrument Curator on instrument rental, keyboard moving/ tuning, and development of the collection
Successful applicants should demonstrate experience in ensemble leadership in pre-1800 repertories of Western music, as well as a commitment to amateur, collective, and community-based music-making practices. Candidates should have a Master's degree or its professional equivalent in academic experience.
The application deadline is June 15, 2019 with an anticipated appointment date of July 1, 2019. To apply, submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, a teaching philosophy statement, and names and contact information for at least three professional references. Please keep each of these documents brief (1-2 pages maximum). Please do not send recordings nor letters of recommendation unless requested.
