Cool Choir is a new concept in community choirs – direct from the UK. This is a non-auditioned, all-inclusive adult rock and pop choir experience performing original and exclusive arrangements of songs by legendary groups and artists – in rich harmony
Already successful in Calgary, there are nearly 400 members of public singing weekly across multiple locations and now Cool Choir has grown to be Calgary’s largest, recreational choir and the only non-auditioned adult rock and pop choir of its kind in the city – just two years since launch.
Our fun, fast growing, young and one-of-a-kind vibrant company is seeking an exceptionally talented, energetic candidate to launch Cool Choir in Edmonton in September 2018.
Working alongside the company’s Director, you will launch and run this community based business and your skills as a natural leader, along with your ability to inspire and motivate those around you will ensure its success. You will be self-employed and running your own business, so bring your entrepreneurial skills to the party!
You will have a bubbly, engaging and sometimes quirky personality (personality is key to this role!) and like us, you will have a passion for rock and pop music. Our ideal candidate will have advanced piano skills but a formal background in music is not necessary. Your boundless energy, ear for harmony, ability to hold a tune and your enthusiasm for technology and social media will keep your members wanting more.
This is a role requiring a long-term commitment and would be suited to new graduate musicians, teachers/vocal coaches looking for a new challenge, professional musicians looking for a second income or anyone with the skills required, looking for an entrepreneurial business opportunity.
- Be able to read music
- Have the ability to network, promote and be comfortable being interviewed by the media
- Be exceptionally comfortable with technology and social media
- Have the desire to motivate, inspire and engage others
- Be a great communicator
- Have a bubbly, engaging and quirky personality
- Be energetic and vibrant
- Driven, highly motivated and ambitious
- Have great leadership and people skills

- Be able to take creative direction and guidance on occasion
- Car owner/driver essential
- Own or be willing to purchase a portable piano, pa system and microphone
The following skills are desirable but not essential:

If you are looking to elevate your own status as an independent artist or build a fan base this role is not for you.
You must be permanently resident or have citizenship status in Canada and legally allowed to work.
Full training will be given and for the right candidate, this is a fantastic opportunity to be part of a growing company.
Please submit your resume to firstname.lastname@example.org along with a link to a 1 minute video uploaded to Youtube showing the fun side of your personality (this does not need to be music related).
Deadline for applications is February 28th 2018 and whilst we thank everyone for your time, only suitable applicants will be contacted.
