Heritage Chorale seeks Music Director

Heritage Chorale, a highly-regarded SATB adult chorus of about 80 members based in Framingham, Massachusetts, is seeking a Music Director & Conductor to begin rehearsals in September 2020.  We are an auditioned chorus of talented amateur singers from MetroWest dedicated to performance of fine choral music.  Rehearsals, with a professional accompanist/assistant conductor, are held weekly from September to May to prepare for three concerts a year (late fall, mid-winter, late spring).  Two concerts feature classical repertoire and one is based on a range of popular, folk, Broadway, or jazz genres. Our chorale has enjoyed highly capable artistic leadership in its 80-year history and seeks a conductor with vision and inspiration to continue our reputation for artistic excellence.  The Chorale offers competitive compensation.  More information is available at our website,  www.heritagechorale.org.

  • A degree in music, including keyboard proficiency
  • Experience in choral conducting of auditioned adult choirs
  • Knowledge of a wide variety of repertoire
  • Ability to conduct effective rehearsals, expecting excellence but with a light touch
  • Knowledge of Boston music organizations with whom the Chorale could collaborate and for soloist and instrumentalist recruitment
