Choir Director

London & South East

Organisation: University of Greenwich

The University of Greenwich is seeking a talented, enthusiastic and committed individual to lead the University Choir.

The University of Greenwich Choir is a community choir open to all staff and students of the University of Greenwich, as well as alumni and friends. The average membership of the Choir in 2022 is around 60 singers, with membership consistently on the increase.

The choir meets during term-time from September to May, with performances given as follows:

The musical remit of this non-auditioning choir is ambitious and broad, with gospel singing, musical theatre, oratorio and church music given equal weight in recent years.

The Choir Director will oversee all aspects of the choir's activity, including musical direction, recruitment of singers, sourcing sheet music, engaging instrumental musicians, publicising events and managing the annual budget. The choir is keen to develop and grow and the Choir Director will need to engage with students, staff, alumni and other members of the choir to gain feedback, ideas, and to ensure that the choir has a role to play within the wider strategy of the University.

The role also involves administering the David Fussey Choral Exhibition scheme. The scheme is open to any new or existing student at the University of Greenwich who becomes a member of the University of Greenwich Choir, subject to a vocal audition, and involves a cash bursary being awarded to the student in return for participation and help in running the choir.

Rehearsals take place on Mondays from 6.30-8.30pm.

Salary in the region of £10,000
