Association Of British Choral Directors

Rehearsal Accompanist

South West

Organisation: South Somerset Choral Society

Following the appointment of Martin Schellenberg to be MD of Cantamus Dorset, the South Somerset Choral Society (SSCS) has a vacancy for a rehearsal accompanist from September 2019 or as soon as possible thereafter.

SSCS is an established and successful choir with some 80 unauditioned, dedicated and very friendly members from Chard, Crewkerne, Ilminster and the surrounding areas. We put on concerts of predominantly classical music from all eras, usually with professional soloists and orchestra, under our Musical Director Tim Donaldson.

The rehearsal period for our two main concerts (Autumn and Spring) and Christmas events runs from September to March/April, with a less formal event in the summer. Rehearsals are on Thursday evenings 7:30pm to 9:30pm (sometimes a little over) in Barrington Village Hall, near Ilminster, Somerset, or occasionally elsewhere if that venue is not available.

More details about the choir and our repertoire (including the music for the forthcoming Autumn term) are available here:

This role is likely to suit someone qualified to a high standard or with suitable equivalent experience. A fee is payable on a "per rehearsal" basis.

If you would like further details, have any queries, or are just interested in applying please contact Tim by email in the first instance:

Closing date: July 12th 2019.
