President: Bob Chilcott
New Musical Director, Classical required for January 2023
After 26 wonderful years of inspiration and leadership, our Musical Director David Wordsworth is leaving.
We are a well-established, friendly, West London based, group of amateur choirs (classical and jazz) and classes, taught and conducted by professional musicians and performing around six concerts a year.
We are looking for a Musical Director to lead the two Classical Choirs’ rehearsals in Hammersmith on Wednesday evenings, in preparation for conducting regular concerts. There is also the occasional need to support the Jazz Choir & Jazz Ensemble, who have their own conductors. The Addison Singers, which is a registered charity, is managed by an active committee of elected trustees in close collaboration with the musical professionals.
We are proud of our reputation for achieving a high standard and for our adventurous and varied repertoire, which includes commissioning and premiering new compositions. We have been invited to tour in the UK, the USA and European countries on several occasions.
Oratorio Choir membership (unauditioned) currently 92 (pre-pandemic 125)
