We are seeking a dynamic, emerging conductor with previous conducting experience who is looking for more opportunity for podium time in front of student and community ensembles at the University of Warwick based at the Warwick Arts Centre. This is a paid opportunity. 

Requirements: 

You will need to be available to come to the Warwick Arts Centre, University of Warwick on Tuesday evenings and Thursday afternoons and evenings, during term time.

You should already be confident in taking choir rehearsals and working with singers.  

You will be supported and mentored by University of Warwick Music Centre conductors, Suzzie Vango and Tom Newall, and you will have the opportunity to conduct a vast array of ensembles including: Chamber Choir, Symphony Chorus and Pop Choir. 

There may also be the opportunity to work with our student Chamber Orchestra and Symphony Orchestra.
