Kmts  June  2021Seeking Musical Director - Katikati Mural Town Singers

KMTS are seeking a director. Our much-loved community choir has been singing since 2007 under the directorship of two talented directors over that period. Membership has been around 30 during this time, comprising SATB, however, of late we have mostly comprised women songsters covering SAT. Regrettably, our most recent director has found it necessary to leave us due to his other commitments.

We perform two concerts per year in Katikati. In past years we have enjoyed collaborating with other choirs in surrounding districts for joint concerts. Our repertoire has been varied, with both old and modern pieces and latterly some classical items which led us down a new and unexpected path, to the delight of our faithful audience and we surprised ourselves as we took up the challenge.

We are a friendly bunch who practise at St Peter’s Anglican Church in Katikati each Wednesday between 7-9pm. We love to sing and would be very sorry to see the choir fold if a director cannot be found. Our community backs this sentiment.

If you feel this position is one for you, please be in touch with Karen Sellers on 021 1285684.

Rdc LogoSeeking Conducting Team - Rotorua District Choir

Rotorua District Choir is a non-auditioned community SATB choir of around 30 members. Our aim is to perform and foster the performance of choral music in the Rotorua district.

The choir normally prepares three concerts each year, as well as participating in Rotorua and District events, and also regularly collaborates with local ensembles. We enjoy a wide variety of music, from the Messiah to David Hamilton, and plainchant to contemporary waiata, and practise every Tuesday from 7.00pm to 9.00pm at the Rotorua Methodist Church (Bainbridge Centre), 187 Old Taupo Rd, Rotorua.

In recent years, we have been led by a group of three to four conductors who prepare one concert each per year. Due to recent changes in personnel, we are currently looking for expressions of interest from choral conductors in the Waikato and Bay of Plenty who might be wanting to join a team such as ours.

As a member of our conducting team, you’ll be required to:

  • Lead the rehearsal and performance of at least one concert every year
  • Select and programme your repertoire in consultation with other members of our conducting team and our committee
  • If you have a high level of experience, be willing to share your expertise and mentor other members of the conducting team

If you are interested, please get in touch with our secretary, Shamus Baker at rotorua.district.choir@gmail.com.
