Choir Director - Cardiff

Hours:           6ish per week, including rehearsal and preparation time + extra for gigs/workshops
Contract:      Freelance
Fee:                £150 per rehearsal, plus sessional fees for gigs and workshops

Background

The Choir with No Name (CWNN) runs quirky pop music choirs for people affected by homelessness in London, Birmingham, Brighton and Liverpool. Our mission is to empower as many homeless and marginalised people as possible to showcase their talents, build personal resilience and positive, joyful singing communities. In 2021 we’re very excited to work in partnership with The Wallich to launch a new choir in Cardiff, and are now seeking our choir director. 

You don’t necessarily need to be a hugely experienced choral conductor (although it wouldn’t hurt!), but will need experience of leading and facilitating community music. You’ll also need an excellent ear, keen musicianship, great taste in music, the ability to work with and lead other professional musicians, and of course the ability to engage and inspire and have fun with 30 or so people who may not be used to the discipline of a choir setting. You’ll work alongside the Cardiff choir co-ordinator (whose role will be to recruit and support choir members, plus provide logistics for gigs, workshops and rehearsals).  You’ll receive support and supervision from our central team and other choir directors.
