U3a Carrick Singers are looking for a new Musical Director when their current director, Liz Grant, moves to Norfolk at the end of May. Carrick Singers is a lively four-part community choir that has always sung a cappella, and enjoys singing a wide range of music “from Bach to Buddy”. We have always sung from music [apart from a couple of very short pieces] and would prefer that to continue, while at the same time being open to new ways of doing things......bearing in mind that the average age of the choir is probably about seventy! Currently there are over 70 signed up members of the choir [usual attendance being in the mid fifties] and we meet at Kea Community Centre in Playing Place on a Wednesday afternoon between 2.00-3.45. Over the last seven years Liz has arranged all our music for us, so we already have a substantial library of her music. This has enabled us to give local concerts 2 or 3 times a year which have been very well received. An active Working Party deals with the day-to-day running of the choir.
We are looking for an experienced and able musician to lead this group which is used to working hard, while at the same time having a lot of fun in rehearsals; so we would love to find someone with a great sense of humour and a lot of energy! If that’s you....... our group leader, Andrew Julian, [ firstname.lastname@example.org ] would be delighted to hear from you.
