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,
    Fayreway,
    Croscombe,
    Somerset,
    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, chair@midsomersetOrchestra.co.uk, if possible by the end of March 2017. On receipt, you will be sent an application pack complete with all information provided.
