The Nashua NH Chapter of the Barbershop Harmony Society (BHS) is seeking a new Musical Director for its Granite Statesmen Barbershop Chorus. We are looking for a musician who demonstrates strong leadership skills and possesses a love of our traditional a cappella, four-part style of harmony singing.
TL;DR: SEND YOUR RESUME: [email protected] (and then please read the rest)
Our new leader should have a good ear for harmony and know how to improve it. He/She will have conducting experience and be an effective teacher. Experience directing a barbershop style chorus is extremely helpful. A formal Music Ed background is a big plus.
The new Musical Director will be involved in the planning and presentation of our chorus performing at various shows, gigs, and contests throughout the year. He/She will also lead weekly rehearsals and monthly planning meetings. We hope our new leader will be charismatic, a quick learner, and an effective communicator.
We plan to fill the position soon. A modest compensation package can be negotiated.
The Granite Statesmen Chorus is the performing unit of the Nashua NH Chapter of the Barbershop Harmony Society and is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization. We are an all-male chorus with nearly 30 active members. We welcome men of all singing abilities and rehearse on Wednesday evenings from 7:30 to 10:00 PM.
We provide a consistent environment of learning where we can enjoy the exploration of the musical art form known as Barbershop Harmony.
We value the brotherhood of our singing fraternity and encourage the participation of all members in both the performing chorus and affiliated quartets to improve our singing skills and the enjoyment of our music for our own benefit and that of our audience.
We take pride in providing community service through our song and work tirelessly to build leaders within our organization. Wherever possible we will work to educate the public about our unique art form and its value in the community.
