Contract Job Music Director
The Branford Chorale, established over 40 years ago, seeks an experienced music director to inspire, teach and lead its members. We are looking for a Choral Director with a passion for choral singing and an infectious enthusiasm as well as an excitement and vision to inspire the Chorale. We sing a wide genre of music including pop, folk, jazz, rock, broadway, classical and holiday music.
As a non-audition group, we are looking for someone with an excellent sense of humor and the ability to maintain an atmosphere of fun in rehearsals and in performance. Our choir is composed of people of all musical levels who want to enjoy themselves, which in our opinion lends itself to excellent music-making.
Our group strives to make music accessible both for the community’s enjoyment as well as for the membership. Additionally, we endeavor to provide music education opportunities for those interested in realizing their musical potential. The Branford Chorale’s concerts, featuring singers along with varying instrumentalists and soloists, are performed in December, mid-May, and mid-June with rehearsals beginning in late August and mid-January. Occasionally, we do a cabaret or fundraising concert.
Compensation and Benefits:
This is a contracted, part time position. Rehearsals are two hours each week (Monday 7:30-9:30pm) and compensation is $60 per hour, sectional and added rehearsals are paid in addition to semester compensation. We usually hold one two-hour sectional per month, the dress rehearsal and the concert which, again, are paid in addition to the regular rehearsals.
Please have experience working with an adult choir, a strong background in music, vocal techniques, directing and conducting.
