Music Director contract duration
Date: October 14, 2015
My community chorus is working on a Music Director contract. We meet once a week for rehearsal and then have concerts 3 times a year.
What is a typical duration for the contract for the Music Director?
It seems like we have some choices:
Five years seems like an awful long time to guarantee a position. Maybe if it's a Director position for the New York Philharmonic, but not for our piddly unauditioned community chorus.
Does anyone have experience with Music Director contracts who can weigh in on this? What is typical for a community chorus?
