SUPPORTERS & PARTNERSHIPS MANAGER
Salary: Commensurate with experience
“If there were a Nobel Prize for choirs, the Monteverdi Choir should be its laureate” - Le Monde
The three Monteverdi ensembles – the Monteverdi Choir, English Baroque Soloists and Orchestre Révolutionnaire et Romantique – are a leading force on the international music scene. World-class musicians and singers from many nationalities come together to share in the distinctive vision of our founder and music director, Sir John Eliot Gardiner, in ground-breaking projects that span eight centuries of musical masterpieces.
The Monteverdi ensembles regularly perform at the most prestigious international concert venues and festivals; recent seasons have included performances in the U.K., Germany, France, Switzerland, Austria, Italy, Spain, Mexico and the U.S.A., recent projects include Monteverdi’s L’Orfeo and Berlioz’s Symphonie Fantastique and Romeo et Juliette, a new staged production of Gluck’s Orphée et Eurydice at the Royal Opera House, and international tours of Mozart Symphonies and Bach’s St Matthew Passion. The main focus of our 2017 season is a highly anticipated European and US tour of staged concert productions of the three surviving great Monteverdi operas, the first of which has already received five-star reviews from The Times and The Art’s Desk.
Alongside our busy performance schedule, the ensembles have made over 100 acclaimed recordings for major record labels. Since the establishment of our own independent label, Soli Deo Gloria, in 2000, we have released 40 albums including the award-winning Bach Cantatas Pilgrimage series, hailed by Gramophone as “one of the most ambitious musical projects of all time”; our 2016 release of the Bach Mass in B minor reached No. 3 in the classical charts ‘‘This is Bach at its most glorious and uplifting’’ – Financial Times. Our March 2017 release of Bach’s St Matthew Passion received four stars in the Financial Times ‘’The Monteverdi Choir as a whole is at its peak…an intensely human Bach, sensitive and alert’’.

We have a clear artistic vision of the next chapter of our illustrious history, and we are now looking for a highly motivated and dynamic individual to help us achieve it.
