HHCOS is looking for a new Voices Chorus Master

Haddo Voices are two non-auditioned youth choirs under the umbrella of Haddo House Choral & Operatic Society and from these two groups a small auditioned Ensemble is chosen.

Haddo Children’s’ Voices (HCV) is for P1 – P5 and Haddo Girls and Boys Voices (HGBV) from P6 to S6. Both of these choirs are under the umbrella of Haddo House Choral & Operatic Society.

HHCOS is looking for an enthusiastic person to rehearse and conduct these two choirs from August 2017 – previous chorus master experience need not be necessary. The choirs currently perform two concerts a year at Haddo (Summer and Christmas) with an opportunity for members to sing solos. The Haddo Voices Ensemble perform with the adult choir at the Haddo House Chapel Christmas concerts. The Committee’s aim is for HGBV to start entering competitions again.

The yearly programme would be the choice of the chorus master, but it should cover a range of genre such as classical, modern, folk, jazz and Broadway with an emphasis on nurturing young voices.

Rehearsals run during school term times and are held in Ellon Parish Church – on a Tuesday evening 7.30 to 8.30pm (Girls and Boys Voices) and on a Wednesday evening 6.15 to 7.00pm (Children’s Voices). These rehearsal dates and times are entirely flexible and could be changed to suit the successful applicant. They could both be rehearsed on the same day and the rehearsal venue could also be changed to Haddo if preferred.

Remuneration for the post will be by negotiation.

We invite applications for this position together with a brief CV. Applications should be submitted electronically by 12 June 2017 to our HHCOS Secretary Kim Davidson – kimdavidson2005(at)aol.com
