London Pro Musica Choir is actively seeking a creative, energetic professional choral conductor with the vision to lead us into the next chapter in our artistic growth, building on our forty-seven year history as an auditioned, community choir performing at the highest amateur standard.
This is a part-time position, directing weekly rehearsals, and conducting 3-4 concerts per season.
London Pro Musica Choir is a 40+-voice, self-governing London-based choir known for presenting varied and dynamic concerts with passion and conviction. Our season introduces audiences to choral music ranging from classical to jazz, and from folk to gospel — music that is exciting and fresh but always embedded in the ancient art of choral singing.
The ideal candidate will:
• Be qualified as a professional choral conductor, with a high level of musicianship, leadership and interpersonal skills, extensive knowledge of choral repertoire and the ability to lead a large choir and, on occasion, an orchestra.
• Enjoy working collaboratively with the volunteer Board of Directors elected by members of the choir, and with choir members in all areas of the choir’s activities including concert production, fundraising, marketing and communications.
This position takes effect July 1, 2019, at the beginning of the 2019-2020 season.
The deadline for submissions is November 30, 2018. Opportunities may be offered to various candidates to conduct a rehearsal of the choir as part of the interview process.
Interested candidates should submit a letter and a resumé outlining their relevant background and qualifications, to:
Nancy Knowles, Choir Vice-President
