We have a professional performing opportunity for clarinet players!  On July 27, 2015, The United States Air Force Band of the Golden West will host a live audition to hire our newest clarinetist.  As a musician, educator and/or administrator, I hope you can help me in locating talented performers who may be interested in auditioning for a position in our band.

We are located in one of the most popular destinations for Air Force Bands musicians – Travis Air Force Base in sunny, northern California.  Located between San Francisco and Sacramento and only minutes from Napa Valley, this is a great location to start an Air Force career.

We offer a salary of $39,121-$44,855 annually with full medical and dental benefits, 30 days paid vacation per year and GI Bill for college up to $80,000.  As a member of the United States Air Force Band of the Golden West, we are full-time, active duty professional musicians for the United States Air Force.

Please post and/or forward the attached flyer and packet of information. The United States Air Force Band of the Golden West awards qualified individuals an opportunity to grow as musicians in a professional environment.  More importantly, the Air Force offers job security and stability in an increasingly competitive field.  For more in-depth information about the USAF Band career field, specifically the Band of the Golden West, visit our website at:
