Music Director

Music permeates everything Revels does. It is the basic material from which every Revels production is created, from the flagship Christmas Revels to our smaller pub sings and harbor cruises. It is a core component of every educational program and outreach initiative. Music provides the bond that joins volunteer chorus members together with professional performers and the audience, engaging everyone present with jubilant energy.

Revels founder Jack Langstaff, an acclaimed concert artist and lifelong educator, believed in the power of music to transform lives and built Revels in accordance with that belief. At Revels, music and stage are completely symbiotic and the partnership between the two is of paramount importance. Music and script are built together, integrated into a single artistic vision, and conceived through active collaboration with cultural leaders and guest artists.

Revels seeks an engaging, creative, and collaborative individual to join an established and evolving team of professionals to shape the music and musical offerings that are both the foundation and the language of Revels. The Music Director is responsible for creating and upholding the Revels musical vision, working closely and in creative collaboration with the Revels Artistic Director, to whom this position reports. This role calls for curiosity and enthusiasm for multicultural music and traditions along with formal music training, wide-ranging musical tastes, a desire for creative collaboration, and a deep understanding of the core elements of Revels (which can be learned once in the role).

The Music Director is responsible for the selection, arrangement, and delivery of the musical program for Cambridge Revels performances, programs, and events throughout the year; creation, management, scheduling, and conducting Revels choral groups; and direction and production of recordings and publications.
