Choral Director  Vacancy from September 2014

A vacancy exists for a full time Choral Director from September 2014

The Choral Director position is suitable for an ambitious and creative musician with exceptional gifts in working with young voices and a desire to achieve the highest possible standards within an internationally recognised choral programme.

The Diocese of Leeds has the largest church programme of choral music for young people in the United Kingdom. In total it maintains 55 choirs comprising some 2500 children meeting weekly. There are 43 school choirs, six boys' choirs, six girls' choirs, a new choir school and a semi-professional adult choir. There are two main elements to the system: auditioned choirs for boys and girls and the Diocesan Schools Singing Programme. These two areas of work are complementary and the musical and educational rewards flow into the schools and the liturgical life of the Diocese.

The Music Department consists of the Diocesan Director of Music, the Director of the Schools Singing Programme, the Director of the Choir School, three full-time and one part-time Choral Directors, the Cathedral Organist, the Department Coordinator, two Organ Scholars and a Choral Conducting Scholar.The Schools Singing Programme is a substantial and ambitious project, begun in 2003 in Bradford and now reaches across the Diocese. Our Choral Directors provide inspirational and demanding choral provision to the schools and auditioned choirs, achieving extremely high standards.

Salary c21k plus full pension package.
