YCC seeks assistant director, accompanist
Adult local and area musicians looking to exercise their talents may find an opportunity in a surprising place � with the Yankton Children's Choir (YCC).

The YCC is currently seeking an assistant choral director and a Concert Choir accompanist for its 2006-2007 season (late August 2006 through early June 2007).

These part-time paid positions may be combined by a person with both strong keyboard and choral conducting skills.

The assistant choral director will conduct warm-ups and sectional rehearsals, monitor and work with individual singers, conduct the Preparatory and/or Concert Choirs during rehearsals and performances, and in general assist Choral Director Lea Ann Schramm and Associate Choral Director Margaret Lyons.

"We have always had an assistant director, until this most recent season, when our longtime director/accompanist, JoAnne Hamilton, had to resign at the last moment," said Schramm. "We discovered that we really want that extra person to give the kind of attention to each singer and each piece of music that has been our hallmark."

The Concert Choir accompanist will provide piano accompaniment during scheduled rehearsals and for concerts and other performances.

Deadline for submission of resumes is July 15. They should be sent to Yankton Children's Choir, PO Box 409, Yankton, SD 57078. Please direct questions to Executive Director Katy Gifford (402-586-2411; blessings@gpcom.net) or Schramm (605-665-4394; lschramm@iw.net).
