Society seeks new conductor

BAKEWELL Choral Society is looking to appoint a new musical director and conductor.

Bakewell Choral Society is a mixed choir of 75-plus voices performing four public concerts of sacred and secular works each year in various venues.

The ensemble holds rehearsals every Monday evening (in school term-time) in Bakewell Methodist Church.

This position will attract a fee, commensurate with experience.
