Calling young musicians
At Cantorion Rhos, we actively encourage young musicians to develop their musical skills. One of the ways we do this is to offer the position of deputy pianist in our choir. This involves attending our choir rehearsals and assisting our accompanist Caroline Morris.
The deputy pianist can get as involved in the choir as they want. This may include accompanying the choir at concerts, performing solos at concerts or even taking part practices. It all depends on the skill and confidence of the individual.
We have been really lucky to have a number of deputy pianists each bringing their own personal skills to the choir. Some of our previous deputy’s have gone on to study music in the UK’s leading conservatories. They have enjoyed the experience so much that every one of them has stayed in touch with the choir.
You don’t have to take my word for it, below Conal Bembridge-Sayers recalls his time with us:
“Being the Deputy Accompanist of Cantorion Rhos is a great experience. The musical team are a pleasure to work with a rehearsals are fun and rewarding. The choir is a great bunch of people and make you feel at home. The job role requires a variety of skills all which you can learn whilst having a laugh and all that will benefit you in the future! It’s an all round great position to hold!”
We are looking for the next deputy to follow Bethan who is heading off to university in September. We wish her the very best of luck in her studies and we are sure that we will keep in touch with her.
