Association Of British Choral Directors

Musical Director

Midlands

Organisation: The Cecilian Singers

The Cecilian Singers is a Leicester based mixed voice Chamber Choir of some 30 voices with a reputation for musical excellence. We are looking for a dynamic and experienced Musical Director to replace Jeremy Jackman who is stepping down after 30 years at the helm.

The Cecilian Singers perform mostly a cappella, although with orchestra and small ensembles on occasion, with 4 or 5 concerts per year in and around the East Midlands. Repertoire ranges from the 16th to the 21st century. All members are very experienced in choral singing and many are soloists in their own right.

Rehearsals currently take place with Jeremy Jackman in Leicester, usually on Saturdays from 10am till 4pm, on a roughly monthly basis with some additional shorter rehearsals taken by our Assistant MD Guy Turner.

The choir is a registered charity and managed by a committee of elected trustees in close collaboration with the Musical Director. Full details of the choir and its activities can be found on our website - www.ceciliansingers.co.uk

An application form and job pack can be downloaded from https://ceciliansingers.co.uk/md-application1/

Shortlisted candidates will be expected to conduct one of the choir's full day workshops and as part of the assessment process attend a personal interview.

The successful candidate is required to start in post in January 2021.

Closing date for applications is 28th June 2019.
