The Toronto Mendelssohn Choir invites applications and referrals for the position of Executive Director.
The Toronto Mendelssohn Choir (TMC) has been a champion of choral music in Canada since 1894. As Canada’s leading symphonic choir, and a pioneering force in the development of our country’s rich choral landscape, we have been fortunate enough to witness and participate in many important events in Canada’s musical heritage. Remarkably, the TMC has worked under the leadership of just seven artistic directors over 125 years. The annual budget is approximately $700,000.
Reporting to the Board of Directors and working closely with the Artistic Director, the Executive Director provides leadership and vision to ensure that the TMC’s mission is achieved and that the organization’s artistic, strategic, educational, and financial goals are met. Directing reporting to the Executive Director are the Director of Marketing & Community Outreach, Manager of Artistic Operations, CRM and Office Administrator, Librarian, Bookkeeper, and the volunteer Alumni Program Manager.
The ideal candidate will have a minimum of five years of senior management experience in the performing arts sector, a passion for choral music, and exceptional written, oral, and presentation skills. Training in arts administration or not for profit management is preferred.
