The Cecilian Singers is a Leicester based mixed voice Chamber Choir of some 30 voices with a reputation for musical excellence. We are looking for a Musical Director to replace Jeremy Jackman who is stepping down after 30 years at the helm.
The Cecilian Singers perform mostly a capella, although with orchestra or small ensembles on occasion, with 4 or 5 concerts per year performed in and around the East Midlands. Repertoire ranges from the 16th to the 21st Century. All members are very experienced in choral singing and many are soloists in their own right.
Rehearsals currently take place with Jeremy Jackman in Leicester, usually on Saturdays from 10am till 4pm on a roughly monthly basis, with some additional shorter rehearsal taken by our Assistant MD Guy Turner.
The choir is a registered charity and managed by a committee of elected trustees in close collaboration with the Musical Director.
Full details of the choir and its activities can be found on our website - www.ceciliansingers.co.uk
An application form and job pack can be downloaded from https://www.ceciliansingers.co.uk/md-application1/

Closing date for applications is 28th June 2019.
