Closing date: Friday 10 February 2023
Interview date: To be confirmed

The Royal Northern College of Music is looking to recruit a Junior Fellow Repetiteur to join the School of Vocal Studies and Opera from September 2023 for one full academic year (18 September 2023 – 5 July 2024).  The Junior Fellow should be a young musician, already with some professional experience, who is looking to refine their artistic skills, build confidence, and establish professional connections, whilst continuing their own development with appropriate guidance.

During the academic year, the Junior Fellow Repetiteur is required to act as a member of music staff for two RNCM Opera productions and two sets of Opera Scenes.  You may be required to take on additional ad hoc repetiteur work required by the College as directed by the Deputy Head of Opera.  The Junior Fellow is offered guidance and informal mentoring from RNCM staff and visiting repetiteurs from internationally recognised opera houses.  The Junior Fellow Repetiteur is expected to participate fully in RNCM life and do all they can to raise the profile of the RNCM externally, and function as an RNCM ambassador.  The successful applicant will have full access to RNCM facilities, including practice rooms and the library.  The Junior Fellow Repetiteur is required to live in Greater Manchester and will normally be on site five days a week during term time.

Recorded Audition Requirements

1) Two operatic ensemble scenes (singing in the vocal parts).  Each scene should last between 5-8 mins

2) One short solo piano piece from the romantic period (demonstrating a level of virtuosity)

Shortlisted applicants will be invited to attend an interview.
