Association Of British Choral Directors

Musical Director required

Midlands

Organisation: Colla Voce Chamber Choir

Colla Voce chamber choir is one of the leading chamber choirs in the West Midlands, based in the Black Country. The choir currently has 22 singers (SATB) and performs classical choral music from 17th - 21st centuries. Choir members aspire to high choral standards and have good singing and reading skills.

A vacancy has arisen for an experienced and inspirational Musical Director, starting in September 2019, to lead and develop the choir and its repertoire. The successful applicant will have energy, commitment and enthusiasm, have high standards and fast pace in rehearsals. The choir responds well to expressive direction and we are looking for a director with vocal training experience as well as an emphasis on musicality and interpretation.

The ability to accompany the choir would be an advantage but is not essential.

The choir has performed a number of large accompanied works and a capella performances, from Monteverdi to Brahms to Lauridsen and many others. See the website for details of works performed to date, and listen to some extracts.

Please visit www.collavocechoir.co.uk for more information.

The choir performs 2 main concerts a year. Rehearsals are held on Thursday evenings from 8.00pm - 9.30pm. Rehearsals and concert fees are subject to discussion.

Interested candidates should contact Eleanor Rushbury with a CV and accompanying biog/letter at collavoceinfo@gmail.com by 31st March 2019. If you'd like to discuss this role further please email or phone on 01815 071179.
