Cantores Chamber Choir is looking for a new musical director to start in September 2019, as after a long and happy association, our current MD is retiring.
Cantores is an auditioned choir of 26 singers who love to sing a varied programme of old and new, sacred and secular choral music, often in 8 or more parts. We are good sight readers and enjoy the challenge of new music. Our ambition is to put on quality performances.
We are primarily an a cappella choir but our repertoire includes some accompanied works.
We rehearse every Wednesday from 7.30-9.30 in the Reading Room at Rendcomb College, GL7 7HA.
We are looking for someone who is an experienced conductor and choral trainer with high musical expectations, has the ability to enthuse and is able to select a varied and challenging repertoire.
There is more information about the choir, our repertoire and this position on our website www.cantores.net
Please contact the Chair of the committee, Katherine Safe with any further queries (contact details on our website)
