Vacancy - Musical Director

Gledholt Male Voice Choir is a long established member of the musical scene in Huddersfield. We have more than 40 singing members and welcome new members of all age groups and ability. As a choir, we cherish our male voice choir heritage and although we sing 4-part harmony in the traditional way, our repertoire is more eclectic than most other choirs. We sing with copy which, we believe, enables us to introduce more new pieces each year.

Typically, we give approximately six concerts a year; mainly locally, but also we like to go ‘on tour’. In May last year we spent a long weekend in Ireland and gave a series of concerts in Tralee which helped to raise 4000 euros for a local charity and next year we intend to return to France.

One of our objectives is to encourage music in the community and, in particular to involve young musicians. To this end, often we engage young soloists and groups of musicians to perform at our concerts. In addition to our concert programme, every year we give a series of mini-concerts at Care Homes in Kirklees and Calderdale.

We have a professional Accompanist and we are looking for a new Musical Director to develop the choir musically and to help us prepare and adapt for the future. It is expected that applicants will be musically qualified to a professional standard, have previous experience of Choral Singing and a positive outlook.

Their duties will include the following:

• Select the choir’s repertoire within guidelines set by the committee.
• Find music that will challenge and develop the choir
• Encourage the musical understanding of the choir
• Engage with the choir to ensure that rehearsals are focussed and fun

We rehearse on Tuesday evenings from 7:30 to 9:30 at Lindley Methodist Community Centre, East Street, Lindley. Applications, expressions of interest or requests for further information should be emailed or sent to :
