Glasgow Chamber Choir, one of Scotland’s finest chamber choirs, is looking for an Associate/Student Conductor to work with the choir and with our Director, Michael Bawtree.
This position offers an opportunity to gain experience in choral conducting, through taking rehearsals or sectionals as required, and through performances of selected works.
The person appointed must have appropriate musical training and some choral conducting experience, and be willing to participate as a singer in a number of rehearsals and concerts, as required.
The choir anticipates that during one year the Associate/Student Conductor will be expected to take around 8 rehearsals when the Director is unavailable, as well as conducting parts of rehearsals when the Director is present.
An annual fee in the region of £600-800 will be offered.
If you are interested, please contact us with your name, contact details (email, phone number), details of your musical training and experience, and a statement outlining why you would like to be considered for this position.
Closing date for applications is 15 September 2016. Short-listed candidates will be required to attend a rehearsal on 22 September, and be prepared to conduct during that rehearsal.
