We are seeking an experienced and talented Accompanist to start on 4th January 2022.
You will be an accomplished pianist with excellent score-reading skills. A good singing voice underpinned by a good knowledge of technique would be an advantage. You will accompany our weekly rehearsals and annual singing workshop, and be willing to lead sectional rehearsals and deputise for the Musical Director if required (both for an additional fee). You will also perform in our concerts (for an additional fee) either as an accompanist or as an extra singer, depending on the repertoire. The position is paid on a sessional self-employed basis: rehearsal fees are inflation-linked and currently stand at £90 per 2¼ hour session.
We usually perform 3 concerts each season, which runs from September to June, singing a broad range of music including major works of the choral repertoire with professional soloists and orchestral ensembles, and pieces specially commissioned for the choir. We normally rehearse on Tuesday evenings in a central Godalming location with easy parking facilities which are free of charge on rehearsal nights.
Application is by CV sent with covering email to firstname.lastname@example.org by 9am on Friday 8th October. Evening auditions are currently scheduled for 12th and 19th October so please indicate if alternative dates are required.
