Leadership & Inspiration
The May Festival seeks an individual who will lead the May Festival Chorus with confidence while demonstrating compassion and respect. They must be committed to the MFC’s artistic development and personal well-being, collectively and individually. The Director of Choruses will serve as an inspirational force and establish a healthy rapport with singers, administration, volunteers, the board, and the community.
Communication & Collaboration
The ideal candidate will exhibit superb communication skills, seek clarity, demonstrate adaptability, and be prepared to tolerate risk within the framework of artistic expression and vision.
The May Festival seeks an individual whose focus embraces the organization’s vision of relevancy beyond the doors of Cincinnati Music Hall. The May Festival’s strategic objectives make it imperative that the Director of Choruses serve as an ambassador and advocate of the Chorus and the May Festival across all its stakeholders.
The May Festival seeks candidates who will embrace and adopt the May Festival Chorus as their responsibility, with attention to preserving and enhancing its profile and strengthening the connections between the organization and collaborators throughout the region, the country, and the world.
Creativity & Vision
It is also imperative that the successful candidate encourage and support imaginative programming and be aware of and engaged with the full range of May Festival activities. The candidate must actively embrace and advocate for the May Festival’s Diversity, Equity, and Accessibility Plan, including the broader choral ecosystem, the May Festival Youth Chorus, the Choral Conductor Fellowship, and other programs that aspire to serve all ages and every community in the tri-state (Southwest Ohio, Southeast Indiana, Northern Kentucky) region.
Final candidates must be available to be in Cincinnati for 2-3 days from August 28th to September 18th, 2023—specific dates to be mutually agreed upon.
