COMMUNITY CHORUS DIRECTOR OPPORTUNITY

We are in search of a director for our 60 member, 53 year old chorus which produces 2 shows a year, one in December, one in early May. The successful candidate will have strong musical ability with a background in choral directing and be able to teach parts to chorus members with varying singing abilities. All selections are memorized. Show programs include but not limited to folk, poplar, standards and Broadway selections, may of which are available in or large music library. 

Patience, the ability to communicate clearly, a good sense of humor, reliability and integrity are all a must. Ability to produce digital audio files for practice preferred. Although we have a rehearsal accompanist, the ability to play the piano is a plus. Compensation is negotiable. Rehearsals will begin in September 2024. For a complete job description, questions, or if you are interested in this opportunity, please contact Carla Mason at carlapm414@gmail.com or 508-579-9263 by August 1, 20204.

TREASURER NEEDED

Do you have a background in bookkeeping, finance, or business? Are you interested in supporting the arts? If so, Westborough Community Chorus may be looking for you!

We are in need of a treasurer who is familiar with QuickBooks, bank statement reconciliation, bill pay, and the like. And while we'd love to have you joint our chorus, that wouldn't necessarily be required, as we can have meme\bers collect dues and other needed in-person tasks. Unfortunately, we can't offer a salary as this has always been a volunteer position.

What we can offer you is the opportunity to be part of our chorus that's been described numerous as a "family", along with some perks such as free tickets to our performances. You would also be offered the opportunity to accompany our performers to some unique places, such as our recent performance at the Worcester Bravehearts game, or possibly joining us for an upcoming September WooSox game, or a Hanover Theatre pre-show performance in December.

If this is something you are interested in, please reach out to the WCC President Team as soon as possible at president@westboroughcommunitychorus.com

MEMBERSHIP

WCC members are mostly from the metrowest area - from Worcester, east to Framingham - but some travel from as far as Boston to join us! We range in age from 20s to 80s, with all levels of singing and musical experience. 

Members pay dues of $30 per show (or $50 per year) to support the chorus, but we never let funding stand in the way of people's participation - please speak to our president, vice president, treasurer, or director if you are unable to afford dues.

COMMITMENT

WCC performs two shows per year - a holiday performance in early December and a differently-themed spring show in early May.

While most members sing in both shows, we are more than happy to have singers join as they are able per show. We encourage members to attend all rehearsals both for their benefit and so their beautiful voices can benefit others!

WHAT PEOPLE SAY

"Bringing people together to sing in a chorus is a matter of osmosis. They help and learn from each other"
