The Derventio Choir based in Allestree, Derby is seeking a new musical director from September 2019.
Established for 26 years, and with only 4 MDs throughout that time, it is a friendly unauditioned adult SATB choir of about 40 members which enjoys singing a popular repertoire of folk songs, rock and pop, madrigals, spirituals, songs from the shows and light classical pieces.
It meets at St Edmund’s Church Hall, Allestree, Derby on a Tuesday evening from 7.45pm to 9.30pm across 42 weeks of the year and usually performs a minimum of 6 concerts a year in the Derby area.
The choir has developed musically over the past 8 years under its current MD, and is looking for someone who can continue to nurture that growth, whilst maintaining the type of repertoire which members enjoy singing and we know our audiences like listening to.
Reasonable expenses are normally paid for both rehearsals and performances. An active committee supports the MD in the administration of the choir.

We welcome applications up to and including Thursday February 28th 2019.
Interviews will take place in the spring of 2019 and will include attending a rehearsal and conducting the choir for part of it.
