The Military Wives Choirs is currently recruiting for eight Musical Directors in eight choir locations across the United Kingdom:
- Leuchars, Fife, Scotland
- Cranwell, Lincolnshire
- Kineton, Warwickshire
- Bicester, Oxfordshire
- Defence Academy, Shrivenham
- Corsham & Colerne, Wiltshire
- Odiham, Hampshire
- Kingston upon Thames, South London
Each choir’s weekly rehearsals provide an opportunity for members to connect with one another, feel supported and welcomed, and provide a safe and encouraging space for the singers to learn new music, develop musical and non-musical skills, and become familiar with the nature of rehearsals and performances, while benefiting from the well-documented mental and physical health benefits of group-music-making. Above all, a Military Wives Choirs Musical Director’s role is to make music fun and accessible to everyone, to promote a culture of support and respect, and to allow members to develop and shine as an ensemble.
In practical terms, the role involves leading engaging and varied weekly rehearsals, and ensuring that new and existing members feel welcome, conducting confident and well-prepared performances each year locally, and nationally on occasion, and working with the choir’s volunteer committee, including attending planning and repertoire meetings. There is also the opportunity to work with the wider charity team and other Military Wives Choirs MDs, especially the Artistic Planning & Engagement Manager and Artistic Director, conductor Hilary Davan Wetton, to facilitate professional and choir development and to ensure the highest possible standard.
The closing date for applications is midnight, 9 May 2021.
