Chesterfield Symphony Orchestra is seeking a new conductor/musical director from Monday  18th March 2024 to take over from our current conductor.

The orchestra was formed in the Derbyshire town of Chesterfield over 40 years ago as a self-governing amateur performing group of around 55 players. With a mainly traditional classical/romantic repertoire we are looking for someone to take over this established group and lead/enthuse them to reach new heights, work closely with the committee and leader of the orchestra to plan interesting programmes within a budget and provide a dynamic and stimulating environment for members to make music.

season runs from September – July, rehearsing on Tuesday evenings during school term times between 19:30 and 21:30, with three concerts per year and a lunch time chamber orchestra performance. 

Engagement will be on independent contractor basis.
