Union Chapel Singers
Union Chapel Singers is a community choir formed by Union Chapel Church.
We are looking to appoint a Musical Director initially for the Autumn term beginning in September 2021.
Each Monday evening is both a social occasion, greatly appreciated by its members, and a learning opportunity. The choir is open to all, with no auditions and some members read music, some learn by ear. Choir members are keen to learn more about singing technique and increase their musical knowledge. The choir also aims to encourage and support diversity by working with other local groups, such as the Islington Refugee Centre.
To conduct weekly rehearsals each Monday evening from 7.30 – 9.00pm
To decide the repertoire in consultation with the choir committee
To provide music for three or four parts – including online aural learning resources – in a timely manner
To encourage the choir to achieve their potential, whilst maintaining their enjoyment and love of singing
To increase choir members’ musical knowledge and singing technique
To meet with the Minister at the start of each term to agree dates and items suitable for Sunday services attended by the choir
To ensure the choir is performance ready
To encourage the choir to join in other musical events in the wider community
The choir will normally sing at one Sunday service each term and at the annual Christmas service.
It should be noted that in recent years the Christmas service has been attended by 1000 people and is a major event In Union Chapel calendar.
The choir may organise secular social activities and take part in other community choir events e.g. Common and Kind and Sing for Water.
The choir will pay £100 per rehearsal to include preparation of learning resources.
Please send a relevant CV and covering letter to [email protected] by July 8th. Auditions to be held on the evening of July 19th.
