Hi all - please share this if anyone knows someone who might be interested!

We are looking for an experienced and enthusiastic conductor with excellent musical credentials to take over the baton from our skilled and well-loved current conductor, who is retiring after leading the band for over twenty years.

We are a 35 – 40 membership concert band for musicians of grade 5 and above. We play regular gigs throughout the year, including formal concerts organised by our committee, bandstand gigs, the London Marathon and many more. We also have an active social aspect to our band!

Responsibilities will include preparing for and taking one rehearsal a week, from 8pm -10pm on a Thursday evening in Brixton, and conducting our regular concerts throughout the year. You will also work with the committee to influence the repertoire for our concerts, taking music from our extensive library and sourcing new music when appropriate. It is essential that you have a passion for community music and are happy to abide by the charity’s ethos, which includes an open and welcoming policy for members, with no auditions.

The successful candidate will have solid experience of conducting a wind band, in depth knowledge of concert band material and the ability to transpose. This is a freelance position, but you would need to be available for regular rehearsals and gigs. If you are interested in applying, please send your CV with a covering letter to:
