Toronto Children's Chorus Seeks Accompanist for the 2009-2010 Season

The Toronto Children's Chorus, led by Artistic Director Elise Bradley, is looking for a pianist for the coming season. Here is the press release I received earlier tonight:
Entering its 32nd year, the Toronto Children's Chorus (TCC) is committed to providing life enhancing experiences for children through the study and performance of the choral art. Under Artistic Director Elise Bradley, TCC continues to build its successful tradition of providing unparalleled choral music education to over 300 young singers in the Greater Toronto Area.

The TCC is currently seeking one or more Accompanists to join the Artistic Staff beginning in the 2009-2010 season.

Duties include accompanying the following choirs in weekly rehearsals, performances, workshops and camps:
  • Main Choir (Cantare Division) (Tuesdays and Fridays under the direction of Teri Dunn)
  • The Prep Choir (Wednesdays under the direction of Teri Dunn)
  • Training Choir II (Wednesdays under the direction of Teri Dunn)
Rehearsals are at Calvin Presbyterian Church (Yonge & St. Clair) and performance venues include Roy Thomson Hall, the Koerner Centre, and Toronto Centre for the Arts.

The ideal candidate will be a collaborative pianist, with ARCT (or equivalent). Experience playing for choirs, singers or working with a conductor is an asset, as is experience singing in a choir. Candidates should have a good rapport with children and teens, and enjoy striving for musical excellence. Strong sight-reading skills, score reading, ability to harmonize simple melodies, and ability to transpose at sight are desirable.

To arrange for an interview and audition, or for more information, please contact Teri Dunn, Assistant Artistic Director at teri [at] torontochildrenschorus dot com by Friday, June 12, 2009.
