Musical Director for Surrey Heath Choral Society

Musical Director for Surrey Heath Choral Society

Surrey Heath Choral Society is a mixed voice choir of around 80 singers. We rehearse on Monday evenings, in Camberley, from 7.30 pm. to 9.30 p.m. and have an accompanist.

We stage three to four concerts each year in local venues and on occasions join forces with other local groups to perform larger scale works in Guildford Cathedral. Many of our concerts are staged in conjunction with professional soloists and orchestra. For the most part, we perform the work of the great choral composers such as Brahms, Mozart, Mendelssohn and Vivaldi. However, we also perform works from the lighter end of the spectrum by composers such as Bernstein and Lloyd-Webber.

We are keen to grow in size and develop our skills and standards. We are looking for a musical director with a friendly, motivational approach that will take us forward with drive and enthusiasm. Applicants for this post should have experience in leading a choir and working with professional soloists and orchestras.

Our current musical director retires at Easter. Therefore we are seeking someone to be in position by the beginning of the summer term, although we can be somewhat flexible on this for the right person. Payment will be in accordance with the I.S.M. guidelines. We are aiming to carry out interview/audition during the spring term.

To apply, please send your letter of application together with your C.V. to our Chairman, Liz FitzGerald, 11 Hillcrest Road, Camberley, Surrey, GU15 1LF or by e-mail to For further information about the post, please telephone Liz on 01276 29231 or Ann Fenton, Secretary on 01276 471234 (evenings/weekends) or visit our website Closing date for applications is 31st December 2005.
