Todmorden Orchestra is looking for a new Leader.
We are looking for an experienced violinist with a high standard of playing, and who could, if required, take a string sectional rehearsal. The successful applicant will be familiar with a wide range of classical orchestral music, and able to establish a good working relationship with players. The Leader will also advise strings on technical issues / bowing and play solos as required by the programme.
Based in Todmorden, and performing in Todmorden Town Hall, we play six concerts a year, four of which are orchestral, and two which are with Todmorden Choral Society.
We have a professional conductor, Nicholas Concannon Hodges, whose ambitious and innovative programmes have both inspired the orchestra and attract regular large and loyal audiences.
We are currently playing in smaller groups in a Covid-secure venue and will resume full rehearsals and performances once it is safe to do so.
Rehearsals are on Tuesday evenings, 7.30 – 9.30pm, in Todmorden town centre, and we would expect a commitment to attend regularly.
If you wish to apply please email the Secretary, Jennifer Moorhouse, on firstname.lastname@example.org, including details of previous experience.
For further information please email or telephone 07768 298928.
The closing date is 30 November 2020.
