Association Of British Choral Directors

Musical Director

Yorkshire

Organisation: Ryton Chorale

Our current MD will be leaving us at the end of 2019 due to personal circumastances, and we are therefore looking to appoint a new Musical Director, ideally to start in January 2020.

We are a well established non-auditioning SATB choir of around 70 members, performing three or four concerts a year. These are performed in March/April, June/July, November and December. The choir sings traditional choral repertoire from the Baroque period to contemporary composition and will be singing a specially written choral piece by Martin Ellerby, to be performed as a world premiere to celebrate our 40th anniversary in 2022. We have also collaborated with other choirs to perform larger choral pieces and will be performing Verdi's Requiem in Southwell Minster in May 2020 with two other choirs and Nottingham Symphony Orchestra.

We are looking for someone with dedication, enthusiasm and energy to take the choir forward, building on the solid work of our retiring MD in improving the quality of our choir's sound and enhancing our enjoyment of singing.

Rehearsals with an accompanist take place on Monday evenings during school term time in Worksop. Our website www.rytonchorale.org.uk has further information about the choir.

Please send your CV with a covering letter, to the Choir Chair Dave Over, preferably by email to sing@rytonchorale.org.uk or direct to 2 Nemesia Close, South Anston, Sheffield, S25 5JE, as soon as possible but no later than 31st October. Interviews and auditions will take place during November where you will take a Monday evening rehearsal on a date to be agreed with you.

If you have any questions on the role please feel free to email sing@rytonchorale.org.uk.
