Vacancy for a Conductor/Music Director

Closing Date: 7 April 2017         Print page

St Cecilia Chorus is looking for a Conductor/Music director.

St Cecilia Chorus is a friendly amateur SATB choir with about 60 singing members based in Banstead, Surrey which can trace its roots back to 1922, and is proud of its connections with the Leith Hill Festival and Ralph Vaughan Williams.

We are an auditioned choir, singing choral music ranging from the sixteenth century to modern day in several languages. We perform four concerts a year in and around the Banstead area, accompanied by professional soloists and musicians. Rehearsals for these are on Thursdays 19:45 - 21:45. Further information about the choir is on this web site.

As well as performing locally, the choir regularly tours overseas – in 2016 we sang in Normandy and earlier tours have included Prague, Minsk, Dresden, Venice, Paris and Bruges.

We are looking for someone to start in September 2017 or January 2018 and who can demonstrate their ability with regard to:

• inspirational and enthusiastic musical direction – someone who can challenge choir members to produce the highest possible standards, both in rehearsals and performances
• artistic directorship: provide engaging concert programme suggestions within an agreed annual budget, to include a wide range of choral works
• working closely with the Chair and Committee plus other partners
• sourcing and selecting relevant professional soloists and musicians

If this is you, please email or ring 01737 350767 for a link to the job description and the application process.
