Could you be our new Musical Director?

Are you looking for an exciting new opportunity? Do you have the skills to lead an aspirational and motivated group of women who sing four part A Cappella and to help us hone our musical and performance talents? If the answer is ‘Yes’, we would love to hear from you.

Harmony Inspires is an enthusiastic, ambitious and friendly forty-strong women’s chorus who aim to build on the work achieved over seven years with our current MD who leaves us in October to pursue other ventures.

We recently celebrated our 10th Anniversary and increasingly compete in Music Festivals including the annual Convention of the Ladies Association of British Barbershop Singers where we have steadily improved our score. We are proud of our ability to entertain and greatly enjoy supporting local community events.

The chorus is looking for an energetic and dedicated Musical Director to share HI’s ambition to fulfil its potential. We rehearse on Wednesday evenings, year round, in Appleton Village Hall near Oxford from 7.30 – 10.00pm.

If you would like to discuss this opportunity please get in touch with Lesley Maitland (lesley_maitland@yahoo.co.uk).
