Description of vacancy:
A Handful of Singers, one of Bath’s most respected choral ensembles, is seeking to appoint a new Musical Director, appointment to commence in September 2018.
The choir has an enviable reputation as a high quality, versatile choir of 20–25 auditioned singers. Founded in 2002 by a small group of experienced musicians, the choir has grown in size and stature under the direction of award-winning conductor, Christopher Finch (since 2005). Performances range from a cappella concerts to larger-scale works with chamber orchestra, and repertoire from the 16th to the 21st Century: sacred and secular, serious and light. The choir collaborates with some of the region’s best instrumentalists and singers, and has also toured abroad, recently to Ireland and Italy.
Rehearsals take place on Tuesday evenings in Bath, and the choir normally performs 4 or 5 concerts each season.
The closing date for applications is Saturday 31 March. Auditions/interviews will be held in Bath on Saturday 12 May.
