Mandurah City Choral Society - Seeking Music Director and Accompanist
The Mandurah City Choral Society is seeking a new Music Director and a new Accompanist commencing ASAP.
We are Mandurah’s premiere SATB choir, with over 40 singers meeting on Monday nights to perform a varied repertoire. The choir is unauditioned but most singers read music and/or make use of online support materials between rehearsals. Recent classical highlights have included Mozart’s Coronation Mass, Mahler’s Resurrection Symphony, Faure's Requiem and Vivaldi's Gloria. Recent popular highlights have included selections from Gilbert & Sullivan, James Bond Themes, Les Miserables and Rodgers & Hammerstein musicals. We have even ventured into the postmodern classical repertoire of Ian Grandage, Stephen Leek and Ola Gjeilo. We like to collaborate with local orchestras and supplement our programs with performances by emerging classical artists.
We currently have a performance program of 3 major concerts a year, annual participation in Singing in the City, and are regularly invited to perform at Christmas events around the City of Mandurah.
The Mandurah City Choral Society is supported by a very active committee.
This role would suit both an established conductor and accompanist or emerging artists wanting to gain experience working with a large traditional choral society.
If you are interested in either of these roles, and are available to take up the position either now or within the next 6 months, please contact the President, Nic Devonport at firstname.lastname@example.org

We would welcome a novice Music Director we can continue to grow with, just as much as we’d be delighted with an experienced Director to learn from. A barbershop background is not a deal-breaker, but a positive attitude, musical aptitude and excellent communication skills are vital. So is a modern and forward-thinking style of musical leadership.
