Positions available:

Choral Director
La Jolla Symphony & Chorus





The La Jolla Symphony and Chorus (LJS&C) is conducting a search for a new choral director.  The position would begin in July 2019.  Please see detailed Job Description; all qualified candidates are encouraged to apply.

The LJS&C is a unique organization of gifted amateur and professional musicians, and is affiliated with the University of California, San Diego.  Under the leadership of former Choral Director David Chase and renowned Music Director Steven Schick, it has become a community treasure.

While the LJS&C does present traditional works, such as Verdi’s Requiem and Bernstein’s Mass, the symphony and chorus are best known for performing and commissioning contemporary music.  The successful applicant will, therefore, be expected to bring to the position both knowledge of and passion for contemporary music, and will be able to conduct both the chorus and, on occasion, the symphony orchestra.

Interested candidates for this position should submit a completed application and curriculum vitae in electronic format by October 15, 2018 to my attention via email:  The LJS&C is committed to excellence and diversity among its constituents, and encourages applications from a diverse pool of candidates.
