We are looking for an enthusiastic individual with a relevant background in choral singing, performing and conducting to take the choir forward in a way that builds on the choir's background and composition to maintain and broaden its appeal.

Duties and responsibilities :-

Currently, the Director of Music provides rehearsal piano accompaniment with a rehearsal accompanist coming in for the last two or three rehearsals nearer the concert. This would be open to negotiation.
