HIRING: Interim Conductor for Kennebec Singers

The Wescustago Youth Chorale is seeking to fill a one-year choral director position for September 2014 to June 2015. The conductor will direct a well-established, auditioned, co-ed middle school choir for students in grades 6-8. The conductor will lead weekly two-hour rehearsals on Monday evenings from 5:30 to 7:30 and will be available one hour before and one hour after to assist other conductors. The conductor will also commit to two concerts during the year (in December and May). Additional time will be required for preparation and collaboration with fellow conductors, and for participation in additional choral events and enrichment activities. The conductor will meet occasionally with other conductors during the summer to participate in music selection and calendar planning, and would ideally be involved in voice checks and auditions in May and June of this year. The focus of the choir is on repertoire suitable for the developing voice, and the conductor must be comfortable working with changing voices. The successful candidate will also be willing to teach music literacy through the use of hand sign solfege. The selected conductor will be part of a strong collaborative team including two other experienced choral conductors, two trained accompanists, and a managing director who provides administrative and logistical support.
Information on the mission and vision of the Wescustago Youth Chorale is available on the WYC website: http://wescustago.wordpress.com
Applications are currently being accepted.  Deadline May 12, 2014. Interested candidates should submit a letter of interest and a resume to:
Leigh Palmer, Managing Director  Wescustago Youth Chorale  PO Box 67  Yarmouth Maine 04096
