About iSing Silicon Valley:  

Founded in 2013 by Jennah Delp Somers and Shane Troll, iSing Silicon Valley is an award-winning arts organization committed to an innovative, rigorous, and fun choral education for girls in grades 1–12. iSing currently serves more than 300 girls who love to sing, at our tuition-based program in Palo Alto, and at iSing@RWC, our neighborhood chorus program bringing iSing directly to girls from underserved schools in Redwood City. We believe that singing teaches young people to strive for excellence, work collaboratively with others, and become passionate members of their communities. 


Position Overview:

iSing Silicon Valley  is seeking a full-time Associate Conductor to join our outstanding teaching team, beginning in August 2020. The Associate Conductor will co-teach weekly classes for elementary school-aged singers at our Palo Alto location and will be responsible for leading our weekly iSing@RWC choir for 3rd–8th grade students in Redwood City. The Associate Conductor will also work with the rest of the iSing teaching team on repertoire and curriculum planning for both programs.  


We plan to expand iSing’s neighborhood chorus program to other school districts on the Bay Area Peninsula in the near future.
