The Handful, one of Bath’s most respected chamber choirs, is seeking to appoint a new Musical Director to commence in September 2021.
The choir has an enviable reputation as a high quality, versatile choir of 20–25 auditioned singers. Founded in 2002 by a small group of experienced musicians, the choir has grown in size and stature first under the direction of award-winning conductor, Christopher Finch (2005–2018) and further still under the direction of Tomos Watkins (since 2018).
Performances range from a cappella concerts to larger-scale works with chamber orchestra, and repertoire from the 16th to the 21st Century: sacred and secular, serious and light. The choir collaborates with some of the region’s best instrumentalists and singers, and has also toured abroad, recently to Ireland and Italy. Rehearsals take place on Tuesday evenings in Bath, and the choir normally performs 3 or 4 concerts each season.
The closing date for applications is Friday 30 April.
Auditions will be held in Bath on the evenings of Tuesday 29th June and Tuesday 6th July.
Please read the following files carefully which include information about the choir, our draft programme for 2021/2022 and a full job description with details of how to apply.
