Choral director wanted for small a cappella group
Our 9-woman a cappella group, Offbeat, is looking for a new director.
The group is based in Winchester, MA. Our repertoire is eclectic. Most
recently, we have focused on music of the 40's through the 60's (such as
Java Jive, Embraceable You, Mr. Sandman, Under the Boardwalk, Helplessly
Hoping) but we are open to other kinds of music. We do a Christmas program,
a spring concert, and a variety of social and charitable events, so far
mostly in Winchester. We are also interested in performing at coffeehouses
and other settings. We are women aged 40 - 55.
The director's fee is negotiable. Rehearsals would need to be either Monday
or Wednesday mornings at a rotating group member's home in Winchester.
We're looking for someone with experience in choral directing, who can work
well with a small group and help us to improve our blend, vocal technique,
and expressiveness. It would be helpful if the director was able to create
some arrangements for us, and accompany a few pieces at times. The director
does not need to be present at most of our gigs, where we direct ourselves.
We would like to have a potential new director come to our first fall
rehearsal on Monday morning, Sept. 9, if possible.
Anyone who is interested should call either of the two founding members who
will be speaking with all applicants:
Ellen Wilson 781-729-2203
Beth Norton 781-721-0912
Thanks! Here's to great music!
