The Francis Winspear Centre for Music is seeking dynamic individuals as YONA-Sistema Teaching Artists (Violin, Cello, and Flute) for our Youth Orchestra of Northern Alberta (YONA) Sistema program.
This is a part-time, salaried position based in Edmonton.
Who we are:
As one of the premiere places for music in Canada, the Francis Winspear Centre for Music is committed to provide musical experiences rooted in creativity, nourished by imagination, and sustained by excellence.
We are committed to the importance of the live experience. We host music groups and individuals at every level of ability, anchored by our resident artists, the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra.
We are on Indigenous peoples’ traditional lands, who are integral to our history. Equally, we embrace today’s multicultural mosaic. Music is one of the expressive languages that transcend and unite people.
We are committed to providing a safe and welcoming space for our community to create, exhibit, and learn about music. We are committed to accessibility. The Centre is a platform for a broad and eclectic range of individual voices to be enjoyed on a communal level.
The Winspear Centre has been a cornerstone of Edmonton’s Arts District for 25 years. We welcome 250,000 people annually to participate in musical performances and rehearsals, literary events, meetings, receptions, graduation ceremonies, and educational programs. We are currently working to complete the Winspear Project – a significant building expansion that is currently underway and will include a new 550-seat performance venue, dedicated teaching spaces, and flexible community areas and will help us achieve our goal of reaching 500,000 active participants by 2032. We aim to celebrate the opening of this exciting new addition to Edmonton’s Arts District in 2025.
The Youth Orchestra of Northern Alberta (YONA) Sistema program strives to have a lasting positive community impact by providing free music-centered programming for youth in Northern Alberta’s priority neighborhoods. Our team is passionate about introducing the richness of music to those who might not otherwise have the opportunity, and we believe that ensemble music making is a transformative experience.
