Position Title: Artistic/Choral Director Viva Chorale! is a non-auditioned, intermediate, community choir with approximately fifty members on beautiful Salt Spring Island, British Columbia. Our choir embraces a range of ages from high school students to seniors. Rehearsals are weekly in the evenings with each section having their own sectionals. At the moment, we have a fall session and a spring session with performances at our local theatre after each session. Our mission statement is: to joyfully expand the musical horizons of our singing community. Our continued learning has been a strong emphasis for the choir. Each session during the year, we have had workshops with our own choral director and visiting conductors to extend our musical knowledge and develop our range of techniques. We strongly believe in being ‘a choir for the community’. To that end, we have a smaller choir for caroling and one for ‘Canada Day’ performing at community events and retirement homes and engaging in fundraising for our local charities. We are looking for a dedicated musician interested in leading, supporting and further expanding our love of singing and musical knowledge as the artistic/choral director of Viva Chorale! We have a strong organization of support for tasks required to run a choir and have an extensive music collection. The Viva Chorale! Board oversees the management and organization of the choir so the new director needs to be willing to work with the Board. For more information about the choir, please visit our website: www.vivachoralesaltspring.com. For further inquiries you can email vivachoralessi@gmail.com. The new director needs to be prepared to start the fall session in 2015. We will ask the successful candidate to sign a one-year contract to begin, with the understanding that there will be discussions with the Board at the end of the first year. When applying for the position, please send a cover letter and CV by March 13th to: Viva Chorale! Society PO Box 707 Salt Spring Island BC V8K 2W3 Or via email to: vivachoralessi@gmail.com
