The Choral Society of the Hamptons is seeking a permanent part-time music director whose term will commence February 2023.
In collaboration with the Choral Society’s board of directors and administrative director, the music director will be responsible for a minimum of two concerts per year: conducting rehearsals, auditioning new singers, establishing schedules and budgets, setting objectives and selecting programming repertoire.
A successful candidate for the Music Director position must be a strong communicator both musically and verbally, have a deep knowledge of classical choral music and inspire a supportive and high-quality musical environment. This individual will be strategically-minded, detail-oriented, self-aware and flexible, with a sense of humor and a passion for collaboration. Strong command of vocal and choral performance techniques and choral conducting experience is preferred.
Founded in 1946, The Choral Society of the Hamptons, an auditioned mixed-voice ensemble of 50+ volunteers, is one of the oldest arts organizations on the East End of Long Island. The group performs three concerts a year accompanied by professional orchestras and soloists. The Choral Society is professionally-managed and funded through ticket sales, donations and grants and has a rich history of commissioning new works and supporting local students through vocal scholarships.
