We are seeking a new Musical Director to succeed our current MD who will be leaving us soon (due to relocation) after leading us for more than 20 successful years.
Harmonie Concert Band is a symphonic wind band based in south Essex which traces its origins back to 1976. We are a community band that welcomes musicians of all ages to come and make music, but we always strive for a high standard, and to broaden our musical knowledge, experience and abilities.
We currently have 40+ active members from all over Essex who meet on Wednesday evenings in Rayleigh. We play a wide music repertoire including classics, popular and light music, marches, music from films and shows, and more demanding works written or arranged specifically for wind band. We have an extensive music library to which we add new items every year.
We perform 6 to 8 concerts each year, including community events and formal concerts, some in collaboration with other music and performing arts organisations. We have played at venues throughout Essex, plus visits further afield including to Eastbourne, London, and trips abroad to France and Belgium.
We would like to have the new MD in place by September 2022, but for the right person we would be willing to wait until January 2023.
