The United States Army Chorus is hiring + other areas too!

The Army Chorus highly values singers who are passionate about their craft. Chorus members have the opportunity to avail themselves of professional-development funds to study with voice teachers and coaches of their choice. Some members of the Chorus have even been able to use their annual 30 days of paid leave to perform locally, nationally, and internationally as soloists in such houses as The New York City Opera, Carnegie Hall, and The Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. That flexibility and the chance to act as musical ambassadors to the most influential people in the world are reasons that many members of the Chorus decide to retire from the Chorus after a full career of 20 years or more.

We have many exciting career opportunities available for up-and-coming tenors, baritones, and basses. We are currently accepting audition materials for Tenors and Baritones. If you know singers who may be interested, but don’t necessarily fit the voice parts we are currently accepting applications for, make sure they continue to check the vacancy page at https://www.usarmyband.com/vacancies for the most updated and current list of openings.

Note the other areas hiring:

Also, please don’t hesitate to contact our auditions coordinator, Staff Sergeant Matthew Richardson, at TUSAC.auditions@gmail.com to discuss this job further.

Violin Player/Fiddler, Flautist, Drummer and Keyboardist wanted for Recording for a Fee/Song.
Also, Logic Tutor sought & Final Cut Pro Tutor sought.

I am an individual who makes GarageBand recordings and eventually videos for Youtubes of both original and cover material – across folk-ish but also other genres (Rock, Faux-baroque…). I play a lot of the instruments myself and farm out other parts to various musicians I have played with along the way (usually they’re for free).

Occasionally, I need a fiddle part or flute part, etc. and I am looking to hire somebody for a fee per song who has the ability to creatively and easily/naturally come up with 1 or 2 types of parts per song (I usually will request the type of thing I am looking for – e.g., fills, lead, pat of basic fabric, etc.) and either send them back to me as a music file (mp3 or other sound file) that I can then add to my GarageBand (or Logic as I get to know it better) production or come over and record it here with total social distancing of course! The fee per song must be reasonable and we can negotiate that;  and I will need to hear examples of your work. Chops must be there.

Also, I wish to hire someone to teach me how to use Logic and Final Cut Pro- who can take me via Zoom, say, from my knowledge of Garageband and/or iMovie to Logic and/or Final Cut Pro! And Beyond! Suggest a fee. One lesson per week for each App mentioned.

If you are interested, please contact: David Brandt by text or email at either (917) 653-5825 or Dibrandt@Mac.com.
