HIGH SCHOOL PIANO PLAYER NEEDED!

THE DJC YOUTH ALL-STARS ARE LOOKING FOR A DEDICATED HIGH SCHOOL PIANO PLAYER WHO CAN TAKE THE PLACE OF OUR GRADUATING SENIOR

THE AUDITION MUSIC AND RECORDING HAVE NOW BEEN POSTED AT: http://bandresourcesunlimited.com/downloads/.

We have 6 players graduating this year, and we’re looking for a replacement high school pianist to fill the last vacant spot.

WHEN WILL AUDITIONS TAKE PLACE? Sunday, May 22nd (3-5pm), at Kolacny Music Studios (28 E. Yale Ave, Denver). If the piano position is not filled on the 22nd, we’ll continue to audition on Sunday, June 5th (7-9pm).

WHAT EXPERIENCE IS NEEDED? Piano players who have at least intermediate abilities are encouraged to audition. No prior jazz experience is necessary.

MONTHLY CLINICIANS: Retired UC-Denver Music Professor Bill Clark, tuba player/leader of the Queen City Jazz Band, is a regular clinician. Additional professional jazz musicians will be doing clinics from time to time as well.

REHEARSALS: Weekly rehearsals take place at the Kolacny Music Studio (28 E. Jewell Ave, Denver), from 6:30 until 9:00pm, each Sunday. Some holiday weekends and a few other Sundays may need to be skipped.

PERFORMANCE GIGS? We feature this all star-band during each monthly Denver Jazz Club session, professional jazz festivals, and performance gigs throughout the area. The Youth All-Stars will be performing at the 2016 Sacramento, Evergreen and Summit Jazz Festivals! They are also taking a performance tour to New Orleans at the beginning of August. We are hoping to perform in Europe during the summer of 2017.

SCHOOL CONFLICTS? No performances or rehearsals conflict with school activities.

COST: Each selected student will be required to become a member of the Denver Jazz Club ($10 yearly fee). The monthly dues (4 weekly sessions) run $140, and are payable at the start of each month.
