Allgemeines

Shen Yun Performing Arts führt regelmäßig Vorspiele für das Shen Yun Performing Arts Orchestra durch, von dessen Mitgliedern einige auch mit dem Shen Yun Symphony Orchestra auftreten. Bewerbungen werden ständig entgegengenommen.

Alle Orchesterstellen sind Vollzeit. Wir bieten ein Anfangs-Monatsgehalt von 2500 US-Dollar, zusätzlich zu Reise- und Hotelkosten während der Tournee-Saison.

Wir wurden 2006 gegründet und touren jährlich mit unseren Tänzern, einem ganzen Orchester und Gesangssolisten. Jedes Jahr schaffen und führen wir eine vollständig neue Produktion auf.

Top-Veranstaltungshäuser für 2012-2013 waren das Lincoln Center, das Kennedy Center, das London Coliseum, und für das Shen Yun Symphony Orchestra, die Carnegie Hall.

 

Anforderungen

Wir freuen uns über Bewerbungen von erfahrenen Musikern aus der ganzen Welt, die einen Doktorgrad in Musik oder einen vergleichbaren höheren Abschluss besitzen. Wir sind hauptsächlich an Künstlern interessiert, die sich langfristig verpflichten möchten. Alle Positionen sind in Vollzeit; zurzeit haben wir keine freien Teilzeitstellen.

Als führendes klassisches chinesisches Tanz- und Musik-Ensemble der Welt ist es die Mission von Shen Yun, 5000 Jahre traditioneller Kultur wiederzubeleben. Um diese Kultur und ihre dauerhaften Werte in unseren Aufführungen zur Geltung zu bringen, gehört bei uns Meditation zum täglichen Ablaufplan. Wir haben festgestellt, dass es für unsere Künstler von großem Nutzen ist.

Die Philosophie unseres Ensembles basiert auf der spirituellen Praxis Falun Dafa. Bewerber sollten die Bereitschaft mitbringen, die Meditationsübung von Falun Dafa zu lernen und sich an den Prinzipien von Wahrhaftigkeit, Barmherzigkeit und Nachsicht zu orientieren. Wir empfehlen den Bewerbern, sich selbst über diese Praxis auf der Website www.FalunDafa.org zu informieren und die Bücher Falun Gong und Zhuan Falun zu lesen, die dort aufgeführt sind und kostenlos heruntergeladen werden können.

Wir laden Sie ein, unsere neuen Beiträge anzuschauen: „Künste & Spiritualität“ und „Was ist Falun Dafa?“
