Noosa Chorale seeking Guest Music Director

Noosa Chorale is seeking expressions of interest for a Guest Music Director for the choir’s Term 2 concerts in 2024. The concerts will be a collaboration between Noosa Heads Jazz Club and the choir, with both community groups celebrating their 30th birthdays in 2024. The programme will be in two main parts – the choir’s set of jazz numbers accompanied by piano, and the Jazz Club’s set – with a finale that brings together both groups.  The choir has successfully collaborated with Noosa Heads Jazz in previous years and the concerts have always been well attended.

The choir’s 2024 jazz program, which is yet to be decided, may include works by George and Ira Gershwin and Glenn Miller, as well as hits and medleys from Broadway shows such as Ain’t Misbehavin’, Chicago and Cabaret, some of which the choir has performed before.

The concerts will be performed at The J Theatre, Noosa Heads on 22 and 24 August and will kick off the eight day Noosa Heads Jazz Festival which attracts musicians from all over Australia and overseas.  Rehearsals are held every Tuesday evening 7pm to 9pm, with Term 2 commencing on Tuesday 27 May, with an extra dress rehearsal on Wednesday 21 August.

Noosa Chorale is a not-for-profit community choir comprising around 70 singers from diverse backgrounds. It is dedicated to bringing the rich repertoire of great choral works to the people of the Noosa Shire and the Sunshine Coast.  The Chorale is a cultural landmark in the Noosa region, with a history dating back to our establishment and first performance in 1994.  Each year, the Chorale presents a varied concert programme at The J Theatre in Noosa Heads, and concerts are always eagerly anticipated and enthusiastically received by our audiences.

There is an option for the successful candidate to continue the music direction of the choir until the end of 2024.

Remuneration for the Music Director to be negotiated.
