Musical Director required from January 2023
Chase Choir is a small (25+), friendly, non-audition SATB community choir. We are based in Whaddon village, about 6 miles from Milton Keynes and we rehearse on a Monday evening. We hold fundraising performances 2-3 times a year, along with performing at weddings and other special church services. We are a keen, mutually supportive group that has been together for 10 years. We enjoy singing a wide variety of music.
Experience in leading a choir would be an advantage, but an enthusiastic, able musician looking to gain MD experience would also be considered. Above all, the successful candidate will have lots of energy, realistically creative ideas, a good sense of humour, patience and an empathetic approach. we have a professional accompanist who knows us well and will work alongside you, but if you would prefer to accompany us yourself, that would work too.
An interview and audition leading the choir will be part of the selection process, with remuneration, according to experience negotiable up to a point. Please email the secretary, Marianna Beckwith with a short CV, along with a covering statement explaining what you could bring to the choir. Closing date for applications 15 November 2022.
