The Big Apple Chorus, a 35 year chapter of the Barbershop Harmony Society (BHS), is a vibrant group of 25 active male singers, in the TTBB a cappella style. The Chorus is currently looking for a new director for 2018 and beyond whose mission statement is 'bringing the best of barbershop to Broadway and the best of Broadway to barbershop'. While we would like to hire someone with barbershop music experience, we will also entertain someone with musical director training who is energetic and will be committed to our ensemble, someone with a vision for growth in membership while preserving our vocal and performance musical excellence. He/she should also realize that fellowship is an important part of the tradition of barbershop. Responsibilities include rehearsals held once a week in New York City, BHS sponsored competitions and performances including two annual shows. Please contact Maurice Debar at MJDEBAR40@aol.com (details below) with a resume listing directing skills, vocal training and conducting experience so we may set up an interview and a conducting audition in front of our chorus.
