Choral society seeks new musical director

Bakewell Choral Society needs a new musical director/conductor.

The choir performs four public concerts each year, including a Christmas concert featuring festive music, carols, seasonal poems and prose extracts. Other concerts are a blend of sacred and secular choral music, sometimes including contemporary pieces - by local composers - and, occasionally, commissioned new works.

Anyone interested in this position should contact the honoratry secretary, tel (01433) 630103 or email thedowneys@talktalk.net for details.
