CHOIR’S SEARCH CONTINUES
Date Posted: 25-02-2019
The Northwest’s first dedicated Choir for people living with and beyond cancer has so far failed to find their next inspirational choral leader.
The friendly, just under 40-strong Choir meets weekly throughout the year, on Monday evenings: when members come together to share their love of singing; enjoy fun, uplifting experiences; meet new challenges and look forward to their forthcoming concerts. Though their focus is singing, rehearsals provide an invaluable opportunity for cancer patients and cancer survivors to meet with others in a similar situation.
After six and a half years in post, during which Bolton Cancer Voices have gone from strength to strength growing not only in numbers but in terms of technical ability, confidence, cohesion and performance skills, Clive Rushworth, the current post-holder is reluctantly stepping down due to his many competing commitments: prompting a search to find their next talented and enthusiastic Musical Director to take over his baton.
Karen Elliott, Founder and Chair of the Choir said: –
‘We have come so far in a relatively short period of time thanks to the belief, determination and professional expertise of Clive. We need to keep this momentum going and continue to inspire, challenge and develop; making the next chapter of our story as exciting and rewarding as these inaugural years have been.
We are looking for a dynamic individual with the requisite professional skills and experience, who will continue to make our rehearsals and performances exciting and learning easy for all.
We need an exceptional individual who shares our ethos and drive, ensuring we are the best we can be: someone who feels passionate and committed to becoming the Musical Director of Bolton Cancer Voices.
We have received several enquiries thus far but are keen to reach more potential candidates.
This is a wonderful and unique opportunity to be part of something very special.’
