Welsh National Opera is seeking to appoint a Chorus Master
Chief Executive and Artistic Director David Pountney
Music Director Lothar Koenigs
Based at Wales Millennium Centre in Cardiff, WNO provides opera performances to cities and towns across Wales and England and occasionally abroad.
In addition, each year there is also a varied programme of concerts and Youth and Community projects. Under the artistic direction of David Pountney, the company’s activity is balanced between the established operatic repertoire and newly commissioned works, both of which appear alongside less commonly performed operas as part of themed seasons.
The Chorus Master will direct WNO’s Chorus of 40 members, as part of an artistic ensemble of well over 100. The appointment follows Stephen Harris’ decision to leave the company in July 2014 following a particularly distinguished tenure in this post since 2007.
Start date: By agreement but ideally no later than June 2014.
