Brisbane City Sounds (BCS) is an auditioned, all-women a cappella competing chorus based in Paddington, Queensland. We mainly sing in the barbershop style and have a large and varied repertoire. We love to entertain and we perform regularly at local events and shows. We are a highly motivated, disciplined and unified group and we have great fun together. We compete nationally at the Sweet Adelines Australia Convention and Competition approximately every 2 years.
BCS is a not-for-profit organisation with a strong leadership team and established processes, and we perform with a high standard of professionalism. We have grown from a small community chorus in 2002 to a paid performing chorus of 35 singers. Currently we are under the direction of Interim Musical Director Julie Edwards, supported by our experienced Music Team.
Applications are now open for our next energetic, experienced Musical 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 our audiences, and join us in experiencing the joy of singing at our best. Our preference is for someone with previous experience in barbershop-style 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.
In return, we offer remuneration by rehearsal payment, percentage of paid performances, and contributions to furthering your musical education. Your professional development is good for us too.
