Call for Pianists: The 2010 Castleton Festival Orchestra

If you're interested in spending your summer in the foothills of Viriginia learning orchestral piano rep with all your meals and accommodation paid for, you might be interested in applying for a newly created orchestral pianist position with the Castleton Festival Orchestra. About the orchestra:
The Castleton Festival was inaugurated in 2009 by Artistic Director Lorin Maazel. The orchestral program and symphonic concerts were among the most successful and popular elements of the Festival and will be expanded substantially for 2010. The Festival Orchestra will provide players for more than a dozen fully staged opera performances, which remain at the heart of the Festival program, as well as four symphonic concerts and several reading sessions as part of the Lorin Maazel Conducting Master Class program. The Festival anticipates adding more formal chamber music activities for instrumentalists and will again offer coaching by leading players in their field.
If you're interested in applying, send a cover letter, resume, and one reference to orchestra [at] castleton festival dot org or to the following address:

60 West 66th Street, #32-I
New York, NY 10023;
