Leader: Kingston 3AO

"Leader: Kingston 3rd Age Orchestra

The Kingston 3rd Age Orchestra will need a new leader from January 2019.  After 4 years with us, our current leader, Madeleine Easton is moving to Australia.  Therefore we are looking for a professional or semi-professional violinist with experience of leading and encouraging amateur musicians, who is able to lead sectional rehearsals with enthusiasm and insight (usually 3 or 4 per term), take the whole rehearsal if necessary, and have a knowledge/ appreciation of wind instruments in such circumstances.  The orchestra rehearses on Wednesday mornings in Kingston upon Thames, and gives two Sunday afternoon concerts a year in March and December.

Please contact Jonathan Law (Chairman of the K3AO) for more information, and to indicate interest, by noon on Tuesday 27th November 2018, by email (jptbhrlaw@btinternet.com).  Candidates may submit a short (one page) CV if they wish.  A shortlist of candidates will be drawn up with the help of our conductor, Rupert Bond, and further information will be distributed to them on 28th November, asking for responses by Fri 7th December 2018."
