The Burford Orchestra is seeking a new conductor from September 2020.
A well-established community symphony orchestra with around 35-40 members, we rehearse every Monday in Witney during term time and put on three concerts per year in the Witney and Burford area. A member-led group, we play music from a wide range of styles and genres including some quite ambitious programmes .
We are looking for an ambitious and enthusiastic individual who will plan and lead our weekly rehearsals, as well as work with the Repertoire Committee to devise interesting and varied themes and programmes for each term’s concert. Applications are welcomed from all, from an experienced conductor to someone fresh from music college; all we ask is for a passion for music and a commitment to provide enthusiastic and structured leadership of the orchestra. The conductor is paid a fee of £400 per term to cover expenses.
If this sounds like the post for you, or you would like further information, please send a short biog to firstname.lastname@example.org before 30 March 2020. Informal interviews will be held in April/May and shortlisted candidates will be invited to lead a rehearsal in May/June.
