Seeking a New Musical Director

Please can you help with our search?

Inverurie Choral Society is looking for a new Director of Music.

We seek a graduate/post-graduate musician with a qualification/interest in Vocal Tuition, who would like to progress their musical career development, by directing a local Choir such as ours. Keyboard skills for our weekly practices and the occasional informal performances would be an advantage.  We do “buy in” an accompanist for formal concerts, but do not at present have a weekly accompanist.    A fee is payable per rehearsal. 

Applications are invited from musicians with appropriate qualifications. A recently qualified person who is looking to develop experience as MD is certainly welcome to apply.  A letter of application with CV attached can be submitted immediately, or by 2 July 2022 at the latest

by email to

inveruriechoral@gmail.com

or by post to

Inverurie Choral Society, c/o 7, Cuninghill Road, Inverurie, AB51 3TS.

A practical interview will be arranged early August.  We’re proud to say that we sang throughout Lockdown, with performances replaced by Zoom sing-throughs and a couple of Zoom recordings.  Now, we are back to meeting on Wednesday nights at 7.30pm during school terms, in the West Church Hall, Inverurie. The new term will start on Wednesday 31 August 2022.

ICS is a small SATB Choir, usually with approximately 30 members.  Founded by John Hearne, our first Director of Music in 1998, Moira Hunter took over in 2005, with a year’s input from Paul Tierney during Moira’s absence, and Gordon Jack has been with us since January 2019. We like to sing an eclectic selection from the classical and contemporary choral repertoire, everything from Madrigals to Vaudeville, Mozart to Jenkins, and more.  We put on a Christmas and Summer Concert each year and we enjoy performing occasionally for Care and Retirement homes, and in Charity fundraising events.  

If you know of anyone who might be interested in joining us as our new Director of Music, would you please pass on this information to them?  Id be very happy to discuss the post informally with folk interested in applying.
