Seeking new Musical Director

With the retirement of our longstanding and inspiring MD John Frith, the Ross Penyard Singers are seeking a new Musical Director.

We are a forty-strong community choir based in Ross- on -Wye.

Membership and ability is mixed, but all members derive huge enjoyment and fun from the weekly term time rehearsals and twice yearly performances.  We have a mixed repertoire of music, both classical and otherwise. Ten members of the choir performed solos at our last concert in June.

Prior experience with choral works and musical arrangement would distinguish a candidate.

The MD will be required to lead, conduct and encourage the choir, whilst ensuring all derive a sense of enjoyment and satisfaction from their efforts.

Good people skills, reliability and a sense of humour will be essential and an ability to play the piano/keyboard would be a bonus.

Currently on summer break following school terms, choir rehearsals restart on Wednesday Sept 5th at Ashfield Park Primary School, HR9 5AU

If you are interested in becoming our MD or know of somebody who might, then please contact Laurie at chairman@rosspenyardsingers.org.uk  providing a short description and relevant experience.

For promising candidates, we will arrange a 30 minute audition on a rehearsal night in October.

We hope our new MD will take up the baton in December 2018.
