Mixed Precipitation’s Picnic Operetta, now in its fifth season, is seeking a first violinist.

We are open to subbing out or splitting the position, if a candidate has some conflicts with the performance schedule. In other words, IF YOU’RE INTERESTED AND CAN ONLY DO SOME OF THE PERFORMANCES, GET IN TOUCH!

This year’s production is a mash-up of Beethoven’s “Fidelio” and the music of reggae legend Jimmy Cliff.

We need a player with these attributes:

Strong technique and good ensemble skills. Experience in chamber groups and theatrical experience is helpful.

Improvisatory skills, familiarity with popular music and ability to make creative adaptations.


Ability to work in a changing environment. (Performances are outdoors, in community gardens throughout the metro area.)

Good leadership and interpersonal skills.

Fun-loving people who like good food, gardens and the outdoors.
