Ilkley Moornotes Community Choir is looking for a new Musical Director

We are an established 50-strong mixed community choir based in Ilkley, with a passion for singing and a joy in performing. We are quick learners, who love a challenge, with an eclectic repertoire, primarily a capella, ranging from Mozart to modern pop. We are looking for a new MD, starting in September 2017 to lead us in the next stage of our development.

You will need to be an experienced, versatile, creative and supportive MD who can help us learn and grow, and also possess vitality and humour. We rehearse in Ilkley on Monday evenings during term-time. Short-listed candidates will be invited to run a trial session with the choir in Spring 2017.

For further details, please email (Please see below for other enquiries.)


We meet Mondays, 7.15-9.15pm, school term-times at the Clarke Foley Centre, Cunliffe Road, Ilkley LS29 9DZ.

Enquiries from potential new members are always welcome. No formal auditions or ability to read music are required, though members should be able to hold a tune. Balancing the numbers in each voice part and other practical constraints do, however, limit the size of the choir and we operate a waiting list for those wishing to join.
