Sydney-based chamber choir on the search for dynamic MD

Bel a cappella is looking for a talented, dynamic and ambitious Musical Director to lead and challenge our a cappella chamber choir, starting in February 2023.  Our choir has a history of exploring a wide range of repertoire including new music and has gained a reputation for performing music not often heard in the choral scene including many Australian and world premieres.  We are a friendly group of people, united by a love of singing and a desire to perform to a very high standard and we are seeking someone with the vision to build upon our foundations while creating an atmosphere of enjoyment and passion for music making.

The main duty of the Musical Director (MD) is to rehearse and develop the choir to present public concerts of a high artistic standard with the main concert program consisting of three major concert programs per year.  The MD is also an active member of the Bel a cappella management committee.  The choir and its committee support the MD, providing the necessary resources to develop the choir’s musical quality, repertoire and reputation.

Responsibilities include, but are not limited to:

●      Rehearsing and conducting the choir’s musical activities

●      Selecting the repertoire for the choir’s musical activities

●      Continuously developing the choir’s sound and musical standards

●      Selecting accompanists, soloists, guest artists and other musicians

●      Auditioning prospective new members

See the Bel a cappella webiste for more details.
