Applicants must be United States citizens or have the right to work in the United States. If applicants secure a contract, non-U.S. citizens must send a photocopy of right-to-work documentation (Note: Canadians may gain the right to work by joining Canadian Federation of Musicians and applying for a P2 Visa. This process is completed ONLY after successfully securing a contract with The Glimmerglass Festival and will be done at your own expense).
