Association Of British Choral Directors

Choir trainer, conductor and leader

Midlands

Organisation: Weekley Singers (Kettering)

The Weekley Singers of Kettering are looking for a choir trainer, conductor and leader following the retirement of Mike Latham after many years association with the choir.

The Weekley Singers are an unauditioned SATB choir of 25-30 members singing mainly popular and light classical pieces. We normally give two public performances a year and other performances on request. A programme typically consists of up to twenty numbers including two or three solos by choir members. We rehearse for an hour and a half on Monday evenings in Kettering. We have a regular amateur accompanist.

Mike Latham as leader has done far more than act as choir trainer and conductor. We anticipate however that in future most of the administrative and financial aspects of running a successful choir will be undertaken by choir members. But we still need some to take on the over-all leadership role.

The position is unpaid except for reasonable expenses.

Written expressions of interest with all relevant information should be sent to michael_napier@ntlworld.com or Michael Napier, 106 Federation Avenue, Desborough, Kettering NN14 2NX by 15 January 2019.

Mike Latham can be contacted on 01536 515218 if anyone potentially interested in the position would like to have an informal discussion with him first.
