The Arizona Girlchoir, a teaching and performance choir for young girls through adults, is seeking a part-time Artistic Director beginning in summer 2019. The candidate must be an exceptional choral director, able to train young and mature female voices, conduct ensembles, sight read, arrange vocal and instrumental parts, and modify challenging music to the appropriate skill level. In addition, the candidate must have experience directing choral groups and mixed-level choirs.

The Artistic Director leads the choir, which consists of four school-age ensembles and one adult ensemble, and supervises the other artistic staff.

The Artistic Director works closely with the Executive Director to plan and execute our choral season, with both working under the supervision of the Board of Directors. The Artistic Director has primary responsibility for developing, coordinating, and supervising the choral and education programs.

Job responsibilities include:

  • Teach and conduct weekly rehearsals on Thursday evenings during our season from September to May, approximately 5pm to 9pm. Times and length are open to change by new Artistic Director.

  • Teach and conduct necessary extra rehearsals before concerts on Monday evenings, approximately 3 hours.

  • Attend and teach summer camp where singers begin to learn the season’s music.

  • Recruit and audition new singers.

  • Work with teaching staff to evaluate singers’ readiness for advancement; audition candidates.

  • Scout and secure venues as needed.

  • Help coordinate summer tour.

  • Choreograph songs as needed, or work with choreographer.

  • Supervise music education program.

  • Attend monthly board meetings.

Job responsibilities will average approximately 10 hours per week during the season, with more hours near concerts and significantly fewer or no hours during summer (excepting tour, summer camp, and possible recruitment activities).

Please return resume and references by Friday 28 June 2019 to:
