Faculty Performance Opportunities

Faculty Performance Opportunities

All musical faculty candidates must submit a video audition in order to be considered for a teaching position (conductor applicants need not submit an audition). Recorded auditions should accompany the completed Faculty Application.  Please remember that applicants cannot be considered for specific positions until file is complete, including application, current résumé, and recorded audition. Following is a list of performing opportunities typically available to faculty.* Placement is based on audition and positions available.

Festival Band or Orchestra - comprised of professional musicians, music educators, and select college age staff, these ensembles perform regularly throughout the Summer Arts Festival and rehearse on a daily basis throughout the session.

Blue Lake Jazz Ensembles - comprised primarily of professional jazz musicians and educators, these ensembles perform several times during Blue Lake's Summer Arts Festival and rehearse daily throughout the session.

Faculty Chamber Ensembles (vocal ensemble, brass quintet, string quartet, woodwind quintet, jazz combos, etc.) - comprised of faculty, these groups rehearse during free time throughout the summer and perform in faculty recitals and master classes.  Ensembles may also have opportunities to perform for junior campers, throughout Blue Lake's Summer Arts Festival, and during chapel services.

*As part of our response to operational guidelines relating to COVID-19, Blue Lake is currently unable to offer large ensembles for faculty and staff, and is focusing on chamber music opportunities. If restrictions ease prior to the start of camp, larger ensembles may be added. For more information on Blue Lake’s 2021 adjustments relating to COVID-19 health and safety precautions, visit COVID-Careful Planning.

Video auditions should be submitted at the same time as the completed Faculty Application.  Please remember that applicants cannot be considered for specific positions until file is complete, including application, current résumé, and audition.
