Appointment of a new Principal Conductor

  Applications are now closed  

The Mid-Somerset Orchestra wishes to appoint a new Principal Conductor with effect from the 1st rehearsal of season 2018-19 on Wednesday 5th September 2018. The vacancy is created by the decision of Stephen Smith, our current Principal Conductor, to resign from the position due to personal re-location at the end of our current 2016-17 season in July 2017. The Mid-Somerset Orchestra rehearses at

  • Croscombe Village Hall,
    BA5 3RA

on Wednesday evenings in school term time. The orchestra promotes 4 concerts a year, all at Strode Theatre, Street.

This appointment is being advertised through appropriate channels and potential candidates will be long- and short listed and interviewed with a view to 4 final candidates being trialled in front of the orchestra during season 2017-18, each taking one of the season’s four programmes leading to a concert.

The final selection will be via a ballot of the members.

If this is of interest to you, please can you register that interest with Martin Lovell, chair of the orchestra,, if possible by the end of March 2017. On receipt, you will be sent an application pack complete with all information provided.
