The Edmund Octet and Friends is a small, TTBB choir formed in 2008. Graeme Hopson our Music Director is leaving us after our next concert in December. We currently rehearse in Felsham Village Hall, Yewlands, Felsham, Bury Saint Edmunds IP30 0PN on a Tuesday afternoon. The Octet started as an eight but has since added members to cover for illness and unavailability. It always aims to have two singers to a part at a concert. All members read music.
Our repertoire is wide and varied to suit all tastes and venues. Our Music Director accompanies us on a keyboard but occasionally we sing a cappella.
We give concerts for charities mainly in West Suffolk and we also sing at weddings and funerals.
We are looking for a Music Director who will be
·   ; Enthusiastic and encouraging with good communication skills. A sense of humour is vital!
·   ; Able to convey musical requirements and expectations clearly so that we flourish as singers.
·   ; A patient person is needed with proven experience of working with choirs.
·   ; Develop and enhance existing repertoire.
·   ; Proficient on a keyboard and able to conduct when needed.
