Shen Yun Performing Arts is currently holding auditions for the Shen Yun Performing Arts Orchestra, some of whose members also perform with the Shen Yun Symphony Orchestra. Applications will be considered on a rolling basis.
All orchestral positions are full-time. We provide a starting salary of $2,500/month, in addition to travel and hotel accommodations during our touring season.
Shen Yun was established in 2006, and tours annually with our dancers, full orchestra, and solo singers. Every year, we create and perform an all-new production.
Top venues for the 2012-2013 season have included Lincoln Center, the Kennedy Center, the London Coliseum, and, for the Shen Yun Symphony Orchestra, Carnegie Hall.
Experienced musicians worldwide are welcome to apply, provided they hold a master's or doctoral degree in music, or equivalent advanced degree. We are looking primarily for artists who are interested in making a long-term commitment to our organization.
As the world’s premier classical Chinese dance and music company, Shen Yun's mission is to revive 5,000 years of traditional culture. In promoting enduring and values through our performances, we have also made meditation practice a daily part of our schedule, finding that it brings great benefits to our performers.
Our company philosophy is based on the spiritual discipline of Falun Dafa. Applicants should be willing to learn Falun Dafa meditation and follow its principles of “Truthfulness, Compassion, and Tolerance.” We suggest candidates familiarize themselves with the practice by visiting www.FalunDafa.org, and reading the books Falun Gong and Zhuan Falun that are posted there and can be downloaded for free.
