  • Harmony Express
    www.harmony-express.org

    Harmony Express Chorus, the Germantown, MD, chapter of the BHS, is seeking a new director. Our current director is stepping down soon, and we're looking for a talented, enthusiastic, and dedicated director to continue the great work that he did with the chorus. Our mission is *fun through excellence*, and we seek a director who will help us achieve it. We have an aggressive music plan in place, a very experienced assistant director, and enthusiastic singers who want the chorus to improve. The director would direct the musical portion of weekly meetings, as well as public and contest performances. He would be an active member of the music team, which selects the music, sets musical goals, and monitors individual and chorus progress. If possible, the director would provide individual vocal coaching during weekly rehearsals.

    Harmony Express meets Sunday evenings in Gaithersburg, MD. Our performances are mostly in Montgomery County. The chapter would fund training and other BHS activities aimed at increasing the director's effectiveness, as well as contest expenses.
