The choir is looking for a new passionate, fun and experienced musical director to start from July 2017.
The new director:
- will conduct rehearsals from 19:30-21:30 on Tuesday evenings during term time plus performances.
- should be motivated to inspire the choir in enjoyable community music-making, embracing our style of being relaxed and open to all.
- should be able to source and/or arrange affordable repertoire.
- should be able to bring his or her own keyboard (or other instrument) to rehearsals to accompany or give notes.
Although the choir includes many non-Christians, and sings secular songs at non-religious events etc, we are looking for a Christian music director as this is a core aspect of the choir.
The fee is £50 per rehearsal and £60 per performance.
