Artistic Director, Phoenix Chorale

The GRAMMY® Award-winning Phoenix Chorale is seeking a dynamic, consummately skilled, and inspirational conductor to serve as the Chorale’s next Artistic Director.


This individual will exhibit exemplary musical, conducting, and artistic skills, demonstrate an innate ability to nurture and lead the Chorale’s singers, and offer a charismatic personality and energetic attitude for engaging in meaningful ways with the Chorale’s local and national audience. The selected Artistic Director will join the Chorale’s leadership team to implement the organization’s future vision to serve its audience through the art and passion of music.


The successful candidate will be able to demonstrate creativity in programming, future planning, and the ability to implement the Chorale’s vision to be the preeminent model for American choral music by redefining standards of excellence, and to fulfill its mission of enriching life through excellence and distinction in choral artistry. In addition, our next leader will be evaluated on his/her ability to excel at engagement with the Chorale’s stakeholders (patrons, donors, and institutional funders) and his/her ability to lead onstage and off.



POSITION PROFILE

  • Knowledge, experience, and affinity for a broad range of repertoire, but with special understanding and/or connections with emerging composers

  • Experience in collaborative programming with other groups and organizations

  • Experience programming and conducting at least one professional recording

  • 5+ years conducting experience with at least 3 to 5 years with professional level choirs preferred

COMPENSATION

Compensation package commensurate with experience; the position of Artistic Director is considered part-time. A resident Artistic Director is preferred; regular outside engagements are expected as part of the norm for this position, but must be balanced against and not interfere with the Chorale’s ongoing growth and requirements.
