Music Director vacancy

The City of Canterbury Chamber Choir is seeking a new Conductor and Music Director, following the retirement after 21 years of its founding director, George Vass. The post carries a rehearsal and concert fee. It is hoped that the new candidate will be in place for the first concert of the 2017/18 season in October 2017.

The choir is a group of between 30 and 35 amateur singers with a proud tradition of quality and innovation. The standard of musicianship within the group is high; within a rehearsal pattern of two Sunday rehearsals plus a final rehearsal on concert day, the choir presents varied and challenging programmes, with a current emphasis on British choral music from the early 20th century to the present day, promoting and performing the works of living composers.
