The band is headed by a Musical Director who is responsible for all Musical and Artistic decisions, An Associate Musical Director who assists the musical director in decision making and conducts the band when required. The band also offers an Assistant Conductors position.

The Assistant Conductor position is an intern type position to give conductors who haven’t had the experience of conducting at a high level, the chance to work with experienced conductors and the NZYSW. This is invaluable training and professional development for a conductor. It is open to conductors of any age, however we do expect a level of conducting experience and not beginner conductors to get most benefit from this opportunity.

If you are interested in applying for the Assistant Conductor program, please use this link to register. All Music Director and Conductor applications close for 2016 on Thursday, June 30 at 5pm NZT.
