We Are Hiring!

The Friday Morning Music Club Foundation seeks a new Administrative Director for its renowned Johansen International Competition (JIC) for Young String Players.

The JIC, held in Washington DC, takes place once every 3 years. The contestants are exceptionally gifted young violinists, violists, and cellists aged 13 to 17 who come from around the world. Past JIC winners have earned international acclaim in extremely successful solo, chamber music, and academic careers.

The JIC Administrative Director (AD) administers all aspects of the competition.  The AD organizes, promotes, and carries out the competition, working with all of the competition participants.

The position is part-time and remote, with an hourly wage of $30.00.  Occasional in-person attendance is required for activities in the Washington DC area. Except for scheduled meetings and events, the AD determines the timing and number of hours worked. The approximate labor hours required for the 3-year cycle are as follows:

                  Year A – Before the Competition – Plan and promote the upcoming competition (150 hrs)

                  Year B – The Competition Year – Organize and conduct the competition (500 hrs)

                  Year C – After the Competition – Support winner performances in the DC area (150 hrs)

The new AD will first serve as a trainee alongside the outgoing AD starting in August 2024 through June 2025, which is Year B for the next competition being held March 17-20, 2025. The new AD will be paid during this training year and may take on more of the outgoing AD’s responsibilities as they are able.
