Three Rivers Young People’s Orchestra

Music Director & Conductor: As we announced at the May 2017 concert, Music Director & Conductor John Wilcox will step down at the end of the 2017-18 season. He will go out with a bang on our 2018 Concert Tour of Central Europe which will surely be an unforgettable 12th and final season with TRYPO. And so while we celebrate this final season, we also begin the process of our search for a new Music Director who will “take the baton” with the 2018-19 season. While this individual will be a key TRYPO team member, this position is part time (mostly on Saturdays during the school year, with some additional office/prep and planning time during school year/summer).

Marketing and Community Engagement Manager: We were thrilled to receive a year of funding for a brand new position that will be a shared position between TRYPO and our suitemates from Pittsburgh Youth Chorus. This unique position will help us focus on the true audience for our organizations: the children we serve and reaching them in as many communities as possible! This position is full time, exempt.
