Are you interested in applying for the position of:

Musical Director of Brisbane City Sounds Women’s Barbershop Chorus?

Brisbane City Sounds (BCS) is an auditioned, all-women a cappella competing chorus based in Paddington, Brisbane. We mainly sing in the barbershop style and have a large and varied repertoire. We love entertaining and we perform regularly at local events and shows. We are a highly motivated, disciplined and unified group of women of all ages, and we have great fun together. We compete nationally approximately every 2 years.

BCS is a not-for-profit organisation with a strong leadership team and established processes and the chorus performs to a high standard of professionalism. We have grown from a small community chorus in 2002 to a paid performing chorus of 30 singers.

Applications are now open for our next energetic experienced director. We are seeking someone with strong musical, auditory and singing skills, who can encourage us to continually improve, help us provide excellent entertainment for audiences, and join us in experiencing the joy of singing at our best.

Our preference is for someone with previous barbershop experience in a cappella directing; however, we welcome all applicants to contact us to discuss the position.

Importantly, we are looking for strong teaching skills and the ability to motivate volunteer performers while maintaining the culture of fun that currently exists. In return, we offer monthly remuneration, a percentage of paid performances, and the opportunity to further your musical education.
