Dear Friend of Choral Music,
 
Chorale Coeur d’Alene (CCDA) is accepting applications for the position of Artistic Director starting
with the second half of its 2022/2023 season.  Candidate interviews will be scheduled during August 2022
with select individuals invited to rehearse the chorus at an agreed upon time as part of the audition
process.  The successful candidate’s contract will be effective November 1, 2022, with actual Chorale
rehearsals beginning in January, 2023.
 
Chorale Coeur d’Alene was founded in 2001 as the Northwest Sacred Music Chorale.  Since its beginning
it has been led by a number of the region’s finest choral conductors.  We sing a wide variety of sacred and
secular choral literature from all periods.  Past performances have included Handel’s Messiah,
Mendelssohn’s Psalm 42, Holst’s Short Festival Te Deum, the Bernstein Chichester Psalms, and many
other major works. The recent season’s repertoire included works by such varied composers as Moses
Hogan, G. F. Handel, Morten Lauridsen, Rene’ Clausen, Joshua Shank and Randall Thompson.  The
Chorale draws members and audiences from Eastern Washington and throughout the North Idaho
Panhandle.  We present three concerts per season, each of multiple performances, in a variety of venues.
 
This is a part time, salaried position.  The Artistic Director, working with the CCDA Board of Directors,
is responsible for choosing all repertoires for each season, planning and conducting rehearsals, conducting
concerts, and serving as Chorale Coeur d’Alene’s chief representative to both community and region. 
The Chorale rehearses weekly on Tuesday evenings from late August through mid-May. Compensation is
negotiable.  For further information please visit www.ChoraleCdA.com.
