    The Bostock Singers wish to recruit an accompanist from Sept 2024

    We are a 60+ strong mixed voice choir (SATB) based in Hartford, near Northwich in Cheshire. Founded in 2009, our membership is drawn from all over Cheshire, from Widnes in the north to Crewe in the south. We meet for rehearsals on Tuesdays (term time only) from 7.00-9.0pm at the Grange junior school on Beechwood avenue, Hartford, where we indulge in high quality music making, whilst having fun.

    We are looking for a talented, dynamic accompanist who will support not only the choir, but also our musical director, Nicola Howbrigg, as she progresses the choir both musically and vocally. A successful candidate would not only be required to play for rehearsals, but also for concerts and competitions. There is also an expectation that they would lead sectional rehearsals when required.

    The Bostock Singers have grown greatly in numbers over the past 3 years. We are an ambitious choir, driven by high standards, laughter and vocal excellence. Competitive festivals are important to us and are a key part of our performances. Anybody applying for this role would need to be willing to support this ethos and be available to accompany at such events.

    The deadline for applications is Friday 14th June 2024.

    Auditions will take place on either Tuesday 18th or Tuesday 25th June. Applicants must be available to audition on one of these dates.

    We participated in the Adult Choir category of this event on Saturday 16 March this year, where against stiff competition, we were proud runners up.

  •  Date Posted: Wed, 8 May 2024

    For this fundraising season, we were delighted to support Stick’n’Step, a local charity dependent on public support for their work in the care of children and young adults with cerebral palsy, and their families.  The first of our series of performances was at Northwich Extravaganza Christmas lighting up day on 25 November on the covered stage in Baron’s Square and then on the library steps on the High Street.  This was followed by our sell out Christmas Concert in St Wilfrid’s Church on Tuesday 12 December, as well as several smaller venues in and around Northwich, culminating in an evening at The Weaver’s Whistle in Lostock Gralam.  Total funds raised passed on to Stick’n’Step amounted to £1886.50
