SRS is a mixed, auditioned a cappella community choir based in Auckland, comprising approximately 25-30 singers. We rehearse in Epsom on Mondays from 7-9pm and usually perform three main concerts per year.
We are a bunch of friendly, quirky people from all walks of life who enjoy making good music and socialising in a creative and supportive environment. Officially we formed in 2020 but as a group we have deep roots; many of us have sung together for over 12 years. Our song selection is diverse – we sing jazz, pop, oldies, ballads, musical theatre, madrigals and more. We pride ourselves on the diversity of our repertoire, our high level of musicianship, and our ability to tackle complex arrangements.
We are on the hunt for a passionate Musical Director who can grow with us and push us to exciting new heights, including competing in the World Choir Games in July 2024 and beyond! The ideal candidate will have a solid musical background, experience working with singers, good time management, and be a strong communicator. Our choir is run by a dedicated committee who will support and work alongside the MD.
To learn more about the position, contact firstname.lastname@example.org by 15 December 2023 and we’ll be in touch. If you have missed this deadline but are interested, please make contact. We look forward to hearing from you!
