Community Band Seeking Music Director
.. to begin late summer, 2012
The Jackson Hole Community Band, a musical fixture in Jackson Hole concerts, parades, and other public events since 1989, is regretfully saying farewell to its music director and conductor, Art Fuerte. The band credits Fuerte for bringing them to a new level of performance through the challenging and varied repertoire he chose, and the leadership he brought to rehearsals and performances during the last several years.
With Mr. Fuerte’s departure, the band is seeking someone to replace him, beginning late summer, 2012. JHCB is looking for someone with experience in conducting concert bands – especially community based organizations with a wide range of skills. The music director, in addition to conducting the group at rehearsals and concerts, chooses concert repertoire, works with the JHCB board to acquire necessary equipment and musical scores, and serves as the inspirational leader of the band.
Finally, the band is looking for someone to inspire, excite, and satisfy band members and the public alike, keeping the JHCB tradition of working and performing for enjoyment and musical satisfaction alive and strong.
As one member put it, “It has to be fun!”
The Jackson Hole Community Band is a group of committed musicians from teenagers to retirees. Members vary in skill level and background from middle school students to professional musicians. Most are from the Jackson area, but a few come from Idaho and other parts of Wyoming. The band rehearses weekly on Thursday nights, and performs three full concerts a season, as well as for several community events during the year – including the Old West Days Parade, July 4th events (notably as the opening musical ensemble in Music in the Hole concerts), and at Old Bills, to name a few.
