Children's Choir Director
We are pleased to invite candidates to apply for the newly created position of Children’s Choir Director at St Mary’s Church. This is a truly exciting opportunity for someone to build, develop and lead a unique musical offering for children (age 7 to 13) in Nottingham.
We are seeking to appoint an enthusiastic and dynamic individual to assist in the establishment, development and growth of the Children’s Choir, enhancing the worship of the Church and providing opportunities for choral singing amongst the children of Nottingham and its surrounds.
St Mary’s enjoys a strong reputation for musical excellence which enriches the traditional Anglican worship offered by the church. We are now seeking to expand this musical offering by creating a Children’s Choir. This will complement the existing musical provision of St Mary’s but also to take the musical excellence of St Mary’s into the city and beyond. The role is intended to include outreach into schools in and around Nottingham by way of developing strong links with primary schools in the locality, the provision of singing and musical tuition in those schools and the recruitment of young voices into the new choir.
The role offered is intentionally developmental in nature. St Mary’s is establishing the Children’s Choir “from scratch” and this is reflected in both the aims of the project and the description of the role as set out below. We would welcome applications from applicants at any stages in their careers.
