The London Symphony Chorus (LSC) is one of the UK’s leading symphonic choruses. Based in London, it performs across the UK and tours internationally. The chorus performs with its regular orchestral partner, the London Symphony Orchestra, and also other national and international ensembles. Recently, the chorus has performed with Sir Simon Rattle, Sir Antonio Pappano, Yannick Nézet-Séguin, Sir Mark Elder and Michael Tilson Thomas.
Other than the core symphonic chorus repertoire, the LSC performs contemporary music, including new commissions, and is keen to diversify its repertoire further.
The LSC is seeking to appoint a chorus director, ideally for the beginning of the Autumn Concert Season 2023. The chorus director will play a leading role in determining the LSC’s musical and strategic direction, in consultation with the LSC’s governing Council and the ensembles and conductors with which the LSC works. The chorus director will also oversee and manage the LSC’s musical team of associate conductors, vocal coaches and accompanists.
The application process will include an initial written application, an interview and taking a rehearsal. The initial written application should be a CV and covering letter outlining how our criteria are met.
The closing date for applications is 5 pm on Monday 19 December 2022. Further information, including an application pack, is available at www.lsc.org.uk/news/recruitment/
Remuneration will be negotiated, subject to experience.
