Crescendo Chorus Director
Metropolis Performing Arts Centre in Arlington Heights is seeking a choral director for the summer session of CRESCENDO CHORUS. This is a paid position.
Crescendo Chorus is a co-ed group of adults ages 55+ who come together to sing music of various genres. Past repertoire has included barbershop, oldies, jazz, pop, and choral classics. No music experience necessary to join. This group is run in collaboration with Metropolis Community Engagement and the Arlington Heights Senior Center.
The main goal of Crescendo is to use music as a fun and enriching outlet for peer bonding, creative release, and confidence development. We are looking for a summer director with choral directing experience to select and prepare repertoire; lead weekly rehearsals; and help members continue to grow and have fun together through singing and music.
Rehearsals are Mondays, June 10-July 29 @ 6:30-7:30pm and August 5 & 12 @ 6:15-7:45pm. The final performance is the evening of Thursday, August 15th.
