Welcome to the 2017-18 season of The Occasional Singers
We are a mixed voice choir based in Dorchester. We give two concerts a year, in the Summer and in Advent.
Our Summer Concert this year will be on
Sunday 8 July 2018 | 19:30
Parish Church of St Peter & St Paul, Blandford
We are currently seeking to recruit a new Musical Director
Our present very highly regarded Musical Director is Dr Richard Hall, Director of the Dorset Rural Music School. After many successful years of association with us, Richard is standing down after our summer concert in 2018.
We therefore now seek a new Musical Director to join us in the autumn of 2018. We seek someone with appropriate musical education and experience, including good keyboard skills (we do not have a regular accompanist), and the ability to select a suitable repertoire, to inspire and lead the singers, and to achieve excellent results.
We do not rehearse every week, but have 4-5 rehearsals leading up to a concert. We also have two Choir Singing Days (Spring and Autumn) when we have first sight of some of the music for the following concert!
If you are interested in discussing this opportunity with us, please contact:
David Jenkins | Chairman | 01308 897 019
Elizabeth Gowers | Secretary | 01935 425 383
