Conductor/Music Director

Application deadline: 
Saturday, 31 August 2019
Description of vacancy: 

Langtree Sinfonia is a small  amateur orchestra made up of approximately 30 members, many of whom have either started playing as adults or taken up their instruments again after a break. The general standard is Grade 5 and above, although there is no requirement to audition.

The choice of music is made by the Musical Director in discussion with members of the committee.  

The orchestra rehearses every Wednesday evening at Langtree School, Woodcote,  on the borders of Oxfordshire and Berkshire.      

Formal concerts are given twice a year.  In addition a full day’s workshop  is held in February or March. At the end of the autumn and summer terms we usually hold a social event for families and Friends of the Orchestra which includes a short performance.

We are now looking for a new ambitious and encouraging musical director to help the group move forward, following the relocation of our present director who has conducted us for over 30 years.  Ideally, applicants will have previous training and experience but we would also consider someone at the start of their career.  

Auditions to be held late September and October.

Please forward your CV and a covering letter by August 31st to Chris Winch (Chair) at chriswinch2@aol.com
