Croydon Male Voice Choir is looking for an accompanist for its weekly rehearsals and public concerts. This all-male choir, which rehearses in East Croydon, has sixty enthusiastic members who sing in four parts. We seek a pianist with excellent score-reading and sight-reading skills and the potential to support our highly experienced music director, Roger Pinsent.
We normally rehearse on Thursdays (8pm-10pm) at Sandilands Sports Club in East Croydon, with easy parking and excellent transport links. We stage around ten concerts a year and undertake one annual weekend tour (recently to Norwich and Bath). We also sing in a cathedral once a year (e.g. Rochester, Southwark, Canterbury). During lockdown we have been conducting weekly online sectional rehearsals.
CMVC has been in existence for almost fifty years and is known for its high musical standards as well as its sociable nature. We have an eclectic repertoire: anthems, folk songs, spirituals, popular classical numbers and more.
The fee for the weekly rehearsal is £72 and for concerts £82. These are usually on Saturdays, 7-9.30pm. We pay an additional fee plus expenses (travel, accommodation) for our annual tour. The likely total fees would be around £4,300 a year.
We need our new pianist to start in early July. There will be an interview for the most promising candidates. If you would like to be considered, please send your application, including your cv, to: firstname.lastname@example.org
