The Cleveland Chamber Choir, a Cleveland-based professional choir, is seeking a new Artistic Director, beginning with the 10th Anniversary 2024-2025 season. The Artistic Director brings vision, energy, and a high level of musical skill to build a quality program that best serves CCC’s mission of exceptional performances of unique and diverse repertoire, blending music by living composers with six centuries of choral repertoire, and emphasizing the works of composers historically excluded from the concert hall. Declared by ClevelandClassical.com as “the top...of Cleveland choral ensembles”, the Choir performed at the 2023 National Conference of the American Choral Directors Association as an invited choir, only seven years after its founding in 2015. The Choir has won acclaim for inclusive programming, for partnering with community charities, and for the free concerts that ensure everyone can afford to hear world-class professional choral singing. The Cleveland Chamber Choir brings together performing artists, administrators, audience members, and donors with the philosophy that choral music is a vehicle for good in the world that should be accessible and welcoming to all.
This choir presents three to four concert cycles each season, with approximately 15 hours of rehearsal per concert cycle, beginning approximately one to two weeks prior to the performance(s). Regional applicants are strongly encouraged to apply.
The Artistic Director reports to the Board of Directors, and works with the executive team to maintain a collaborative leadership model by creating a positive relationship between artistic and administrative roles. The Artistic Director represents the Cleveland Chamber Choir (CCC) locally, and beyond, serving as a spokesperson of CCC, and sets a personal and artistic example for the organization. The Artistic Director is a self-starter, responsible for overall leadership, planning and management of artistic operations, including season planning, rehearsals, and performances.
This is a part-time contracted position, with compensation on a per concert cycle basis. This position will begin in December 2023 with setting programming for the 10th Anniversary Season. Due to the nature of work beginning in December 2023, not associated with a concert cycle, separate compensation will be given.
