Founder Malcolm Cottle
Music Director Vacancy: We are looking for a new music director following the death of our long-standing conductor, Malcolm Cottle, who founded the choir in 1966. We welcome applications from experienced choral directors who have a keen interest in taking on the choir and breathing new life into it. We will be shortlisting candidates in the last week of June 2015. Selected candidates will be invited to take a rehearsal, and be interviewed by the committee about their ideas for the future development of the choir. We are hoping to have the new director in post by the end of the year at the latest. Further information on our conductor vacancy page
Next Concert: Our next concert will be on Thursday 9th July 2015 at Grosvenor Chapel, South Audley Street, London.
