We're looking for a new Music Director ...

This is an exciting opportunity for proven choir directors to lead the iconic New Zealand Secondary Students' Choir.

Established in 1986, NZSSC is a national ensemble working with 14-18 year old singers for a two-year-long cycle that traditionally finishes with an international tour.

If you are experienced at working with young people, and passionate about a diverse choral repertoire including waiata from Aotearoa and the Pacific, we would love to hear from you.

NZSSC is about choral excellence, developing leadership capabilities and is a real champion of choral music in Aotearoa New Zealand.

The Music Director is supported by a professional team and will benefit from a supportive partnership with the artistic team of the other national choirs, NZ Youth Choir and Voices New Zealand.

Interviews for this position will take place in August and, to complete the application process, may include working with the choir at its January course in Auckland.

The successful candidate will be appointed to lead the 2019-2020 choir cycle, which includes the World Symposium of Choral Music in Auckland in July 2020.
