CHOIR ACCOMPANIST FOR NEWQUAY MALE VOICE CHOIR

It is with huge regret on both sides that Chris Bennett, Newquay MVC’s present accompanist and assistant MD, has had to stand down from his position due to work commitments as he forges a career as a professional musician. Consequently, this lively, enthusiastic and forward-looking choir are now looking for an accompanist with proficient piano/keyboard skills to join our music team. An ability to sight read is essential; previous experience of choir accompaniment is advantageous; a sense of humour and an inclination not to take yourself too seriously would also be helpful. We are based in Newquay and practise on Wednesday evenings. A remuneration package can be negotiated.

To find out more and/or to express an interest, please ring Jim Christophers, Choir Secretary, (01637 878805) or John Rhodes, Choir Chairman, (01637 876677).

We are currently taking bookings for 2017.

DEPUTY ACCOMPANIST required to join NEWQUAY MVC MUSICAL TEAM

As a choir, we are always looking for new choristers and would also welcome a third member for our musical team to share on occasions, the accompanist’s responsibilities at both rehearsals and concerts. For the right candidate(s), this role could include taking or supporting section practices and occasional full rehearsals and concerts. The choir would also be delighted to hear from less experienced candidates who are interested in developing their accompanying or conducting skills. The musical team is supported by an enthusiastic and hard-working committee who are keen to see the choir develop still further in the future.

Choir rehearsals normally take place on Wednesday evenings at St Michael's Church, St Michael's Road, Newquay, TR7 1QZ between 7pm and 9:30 pm from September to July. The choir continues to develop a popular and innovative repertoire which covers a wide range of styles and genres from classical, operatic, religious, folk, popular and modern as well as songs from the shows. Each year, between 12 and 20 public engagements are accepted with, often, invitations for bookings 2 years in advance. As a result, a great deal of money is raised for and with local charities and community groups.
