Running for biz or pitch?
If you are interested in running for business manager or musical director, please prepare a ~5-10 minute proposal of your vision for the year with you in charge. Be sure to touch on why you are interested in the position, your overall vision and goals for Whim 2023-24, and how your leadership style will fit the group. We'll ask you a few questions afterward.
Isa and Alex will reach out to potential candidates to set up a one-on-one meeting to go over the role—feel free to ask them any questions you have about leadership or their experiences within the group!
Pitch candidates: your proposal should address: why you're interested in being pitch, what your general and musical visions for the year are, your rehearsal style and approach to learning music, and what dynamics you plan to cultivate with group members and with the leadership team. Please also prepare a 20-minute mock rehearsal. You'll be leading the group in working on one of the songs in our current repertoire. Lead rehearsal as if we've all just learned our parts but haven't yet rehearsed as a group for musicality. You can work on whatever you’d like! Once you’ve narrowed it down, let us know and we’ll send you any sheet music you want to see. Feel free to discuss more in your one-on-one with Isa!
Biz candidates: your proposal should include a sample calendar for the year, so think about how you will support your tour plans with an overview of semester gigs, tour dates, and potential destinations. In your one-on-one with Alex, he can answer questions about budgeting and the general scope of a Whim year.
