Dear friends and colleagues,
On January 8, 2007 "The President's Own" United States Marine Band will hold auditions for the position of VIOLINIST with the unit's Chamber Orchestra, the official ensemble of the White House. The organization's primary mission is to provide music for the President of the United States and has done so since 1801 for John Adams. It is the oldest musical organization in the United States and is an equal opportunity employer.
Successful candidates are NOT required to attend Marine recruit training but instead report directly for duty with the Marine Band in Washington, DC. Auditions are held at the John Philip Sousa Band Hall in DC and are open to anyone between the ages of 18 and 35. Potential candidates must meet height/weight standards set by the Marine Corps.
Those interested in auditioning should immediately contact the Marine Band (202) 433-5714 to receive a list of audition excerpts and other audition information. Candidates are required to play a solo of their choosing and selected excerpts. "Walk-ins" will be allowed to audition if they arrive before noon.
If any of you have questions regarding this audition, please do not hesitate to contact me through this discussion forum or via email.
All the best,
Violinist, White House Marine Orchestra
"The President's Own" U.S. Marine Band
