Community Choir Conductor and Vocal Coach, Music for Everyone (freelance post)

About us

Music for Everyone is the East Midlands’ largest independent music charity, delivering a dynamic range of instrumental and vocal music-making opportunities to people of all ages and abilities across the region. We have just celebrated our 40th Anniversary Season.

About the role

Following the retirement of MfE’s founder, Angela Kay, we are seeking an inspiring and charismatic conductor/s to lead one or both of our Daytime Voices groups – Southwell (Monday afternoon, 2.00pm – 4.00pm and Wollaton (Wednesday afternoon 2.15 – 4.15pm).

The successful candidate will be a good musician, have a fun, confident personality and have experience working with community choirs.

About the choirs

The Daytime Voices groups are informal and fun, and number over 90 singers. Membership is open to all – no auditions! The choirs sing a mixed repertoire of appealing SATB music from jazz and pop to more classical pieces. The ability to read music is helpful but not essential. All that’s really required of the members is a love of singing and a sense of fun!

The choirs rehearse 3 terms per year. Autumn (Sept – Nov), Spring (Jan – March) and Summer (April – June), with 7 – 9 rehearsals per term. Performance opportunities include an informal concert for family and friends at the end of every term and occasional events in and around Nottinghamshire throughout the year.

The Fee

This is a freelance role, and the fee is £73.50 per 2hr session.
