HUNTINGDON Male Voice Choir

Vacancy for a New Musical Director

Huntingdon Male Voices, the new performing name of Huntingdon Male Voice Choir, is seeking a new Musical Director (MD) to start on 8th September 2022 (or as soon as possible thereafter), to replace our current MD, Peter Davies, who is retiring after nearly 28 years in post.

We are a non-auditioned choir of around 25-30 singers, with aspirations to grow back to our pre-pandemic numbers of 40+. The Choir repertoire includes classical, sacred, established popular music and music from the folk tradition. Since its inception the Choir has maintained a strong emphasis on the enjoyment of singing and in support of organisations raising money for charitable or good causes. There is a wish to re-invigorate these themes and present the Choir as an exciting and worthwhile group to be a member of for men of all ages. We are therefore wishing to engage an MD who is excited by this challenge.


The Choir rehearses on a Thursday evening between 19:30 hrs and 21:30 hrs, with a breaks over the summer from July to September and over the Christmas and Easter periods. We would normally perform in concert monthly, usually on a Saturday evening. A prospective candidate should also be prepared on occasion to undertake out-of-area tours with the Choir.

The full Job Description may be found on our website at http://hmvc.org.uk/newmd, or from the Chairman (Mike Musselwhite) at secretary.hmvc@gmail.com

VILLAGE VOICES

Vacancy for a Musical Director


Village Voices, based in Warwick, is seeking a new musical director. We are a non-auditioned SATB choir of about 60 members with varying abilities who enjoy a broad repertoire from madrigals to modern numbers and thrive on variety. We rehearse once a week on a Thursday evening, mainly during term time, in a venue with a piano and we have an accomplished pianist. We usually do two main performances a year, one in the summer and another in December, but we also sing at small events and occasionally at weddings.

BASING Singers

Basing Singers needs a new accompanist

Basing Singers needs a new accompanist

Basing Singers is a 4-part SATB amateur adult choir with around 40 singers. We enjoy singing all types of music – classical and pop, sacred and secular, ancient and modern and rehearse from 7.30 pm to 9.30 pm on Wednesday evenings in the Hampshire village of Old Basing, just a couple of miles to the east of Basingstoke.
We generally perform around 3 main concerts each year and are invited to sing at a number of smaller events. Mostly we perform with piano accompaniment but also join with other choirs for larger scale concerts with orchestra. Our concerts raise money for (mainly local) charities.
Our loyal accompanist has been with Basing Singers for thirteen years, but sadly she has now decided the time has come for her to step aside and to hand over to another suitably talented keyboard player. The choir has therefore started the search for her replacement.
You can find out more about Basing Singers on our website, at https://basingsingers.org.uk/.
If you are interested in becoming Basing Singers’ new accompanist and would like to know more please email basingsingers@btopenworld.com with details of your experience.
We look forward to hearing from you soon!
