Cantabile Chamber Choir is looking for a new director to begin in August 2018, subsequent to the retirement of our current director. Cantabile is small, auditioned chamber choir located in Skagit Valley, WA. Our goal is to perform quality choral music with high level of artistic excellence. We have performed at the Greater Seattle Choral Consortium, Benaroya Hall, and the St. James Cathedral in Seattle as well as at local venues in Skagit Valley, WA. Our repertoire has ranged from Palestrina to gospel, and Jazz. We have also premiered several new compositions for various composers.
Our 2018 spring concert series will be April 27, 28 & 29 in Anacortes, Snohomish and Mount Vernon, WA. We will be performing works by Lauridsen, Stroope, Vaughn Williams and Holst among others. We provide a monthly stipend. Rehearsals are on Monday evenings from 6:30 to 9:00 at Bethany Covenant Church in Mount Vernon. We encourage you to visit us during a rehearsal in the near future, so that you might become acquainted with the group. If you would like visit us please send a note via email so that we can expect you. We also have some recordings on YouTube (search for Cantabile of Skagit Valley), SoundCloud (search for Cantabile Chamber Choir of Skagit Valley) and on our Cantabile Chamber Choir Facebook page.
We are looking for that special person who is able to help us in our continuing journey to be among the best choral groups in the Pacific Northwest. The position pays a monthly stipend. If you are selected as our new director, we would like to introduce you to our audiences at one or more of our concerts. We normally have a summer retreat to learn music for our fall session which begins in the latter part of August.

This position will remain open until we find a suitable conductor or in mid-April, whichever comes first. We ask that you come prepared to conduct one song of our choice as well as a song of your own choice so that we can see your conducting and rehearsal style. Those interested in this position may send your resume and letter of interest at your earliest convenience via email: or you may mail your correspondence to Meredith Jones, 1115 Haddon Lane, Anacortes, Washington 98221. Please feel free to address any questions you might have to the email address listed above.
