Summer internship

Here is an internship for this coming summer. Sent to us by former CSO member Erica Knight.

Woodwind and String musicians:

UVMC is looking for college and university students in woodwind quintets and string quartets who also enjoy working with young musicians.

University music students as interns, an integral part of our summer music camp, assist in teaching choral and instrumental music at camp. They also perform a concert series in the Upper Valley area. We would ideally like to hire ensembles that are already formed to perform its repertoire and presents children’s concerts.

The Upper Valley Music Center (UVMC), based in Lebanon, NH, operates programs throughout the Upper Connecticut River Valley of New Hampshire and Vermont: children’s and youth choruses; three levels of string orchestras; a variety of chamber music ensembles for youth and adults; Suzuki violin and cello lessons and group lessons for string, wind, brass and percussion instruments in elementary schools; and a summer music camp for all ages.

Interns will be paid $2500 for the period June 20 through July 20 for teaching and performing, with an option for a few to continue through August 3 @ Kimball Union

The summer schedule is as follows:

June 21-24 Rehearsals
June 25-29 UVMC Summer Music Camp, Woodstock, VT
July 1-7 * Performances
July 9-13 UVMC Summer Music Camp, Hanover, NH
July 16-20 UVMC Summer Music Camp Hanover, NH

UVMC’s summer day camp operates Monday through Friday, for one week in Woodstock, VT and for two weeks in Hanover, NH, the home of Dartmouth College. Kimball Union Academy, a nearby boarding school, also offers a two-week music, arts and technology camp. UVMC sponsors summer ensembles that perform a concert series in the Upper Valley. These concerts consist of childrens’ programs and performances for recreation departments, libraries, house concerts, cruises as well as concerts on the Dartmouth and Medical Center campuses.

UVMC’s camp serves children from grades one through twelve, divided into three age groups. Children in grades 1-3 learn about music through movement, listening, singing and playing Orff instruments. Campers in grades 4-6 participate in chorus, musical theater, chamber ensembles, orchestra, gamelan, theory and composition class. Additionally these campers select a new instrument to explore. Chamber music ensembles are the focus of campers in grades 7-12. At the end of the week all campers perform in an informal concert for parents.

Kimball Union Academy’s Arts and Technology camp, held on the KUA campus offers campers, ages 8-15, the opportunity to explore fine and performing arts, and technology. Courses such as drawing, painting, choreography, computer programming, gaming, animation, instrumental and vocal classes will be offered.

Please send a CD or DVD of a current performance with a repertoire list to UVMC’s artistic director, Robert Mark, by March 10, 2007.
