Sydney Male Choir seeks New Musical Director

The Sydney Male Choir has been performing continuously since 1913 and is regarded as one of Australia’s finest male choirs. Our current Musical Director is leaving in May 2020 so we are seeking a talented individual who has proven choral experience as a Musical Director with a senior choir to be his successor in this key role.
The Musical Director is required to lead, enthuse and inspire members of the choir to sustain and improve the high quality of musical performance and choral singing for which we are currently recognised. Applicants will need to demonstrate exceptional musical competence and experience in the delivery of choral programmes across a wide variety of musical genres. The Choir also employs a talented accompanist who is present for all weekly rehearsals and performances.
Experience in working with a management committee would be helpful, as would your capacity to utilise your networks throughout the music and entertainment industry to the benefit of the choir.
We rehearse every Tuesday evening at Wynyard for 46 weeks of the year with an annual performance schedule of between 12 and 15 concerts (including our major fund-raising concert at the Sydney Town Hall in August). The Choir also typically undertakes an annual regional, interstate or overseas performance tour.
The successful applicant will receive a monthly fee and reimbursement of approved expenses.
We are looking to appoint someone to commence by the end of April this year to allow a hand over period with the current Musical Director. For information about the Choir go to www.sydneymalechoir.com
