Kantorei, the Singing Boys of Rockford, looking for new director

Staff Report

A new era is about to unfold for Kantorei, the Singing Boys of Rockford. Kantorei is actively searching for a full-time choir director to continue its tradition of excellence in musical performance throughout the Rockford region and beyond.

For the past 25 years, Joel Ross has served as choir director for Kantorei. But with Ross’s upcoming retirement, scheduled for July of 2014, the search for a new full-time music director has begun.

We need someone who really wants to take Kantorei to even greater heights,” said Joe Ross, president of the Kantorei Board of Directors. “We are committed to finding the right person for the job and a person with the highest integrity and love of teaching music. We’re looking for an enthusiastic individual who possesses superior musical talent, and the skills necessary to lead a choir of boys and young men who range from the musically gifted to those with only rudimentary musical experience.”

The choral director will serve as the face of Kantorei to the public, network with other music and arts professionals in the region, and develop and maintain relationships with local supporters of the arts. The new director will also be responsible for expanding programming and the scope of the choir as the position moves from part-time to a full-time director.
