Shen Yun Performing Arts will be holding open auditions for its orchestras on the following dates at Shen Yun Headquarters in New York:
June 12-16, 2013
Positions annually entail about five months of touring and seven months at our New York campus. Throughout the year, we provide a monthly salary of $2000 (for most positions), the option of full room and board, and coverage of all touring expenses and hotel accommodations.
In six years, we have grown to three companies, each including dancers, a full orchestra, and solo singers. We have nearly 300 artists touring the world simultaneously, performing all-original music and dance.
Top venues in 2012 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, including artists who are soon-to-graduate.
As the world’s premier classical Chinese dance and music company, Shen Yun's mission is to revive 5,000 years of Chinese civilization. In promoting this culture and its enduring 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.” No previous experience with meditation is required. 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.
