Music Conductor Vacancy
Formed in 1904, Capel Choral Society is a non-auditioning amateur choir. It has a rich heritage of musical achievement and has taken part in every single, with the exception of the war years, Leith Hill Musical Festival (LHMF) since its inception in 1905.
The Society is seeking a talented and enthusiastic, freelance Conductor with strong leadership skills. Commencement date ideally September 2023. Candidates should be available to prepare and conduct the society in the own choice competition pieces at LHMF in April and to prepare the society for the set work, Mozart’s Requiem. CCS also aims to deliver a Christmas and Summer Concert with optional instrumental accompanists. The successful candidate will also work with a professional accompanist to deliver the annual programme of music. The Society particularly welcomes applications from enthusiastic musicians, perhaps recently graduated, who are looking to gain experience working with and developing choirs.
The season runs from September to the annual LHMF in April with the option of a summer concert at the end of June. The choir rehearses weekly on Monday evenings from 7.45-9.45pm.
Capel is a small village set in the Surrey Hills, south of Dorking. The successful candidate will ideally possess a driving licence as public transport to and from Capel is not ideal.
Closing date Monday 31st July 2023.
Auditions will take place during September 2023.
