Musical Director –

Bristol Reggae Orchestra is an award winning community orchestra with about 30 adult members from diverse backgrounds. The orchestra includes strings, brass, woodwind and percussion sections as well as guitars, drums and vocals. We play a wide repertoire based on music and rhythms of Jamaican origin, with an emphasis on original music created for the orchestra. Established over 10 successful years, our current MD is moving on and so we are looking to recruit a Music Director/Conductor who can lead regular rehearsals and contribute to orchestra development, including our educational, outreach and workshop programmes.

The orchestra rehearses fortnightly on Mondays in the St Paul’s area of Bristol. This opportunity would suit a music graduate or community musician who has broad performing experience as well as knowledge and skills in music arranging, reading scores and conducting medium to large ensembles. This is a paid role and the MD is supported by an active volunteer committee.
