ORA Singers is an award-winning professional vocal group, which has just celebrated its 5th anniversary. In that short time the group has commissioned 49 new works, released 7 albums, performed across the UK and internationally, and won Germany’s biggest music prize, the 2018 Opus Klassik Award, for 'Best Ensemble of the Year'.
In 2018 it piloted the first Composer Competition to mentor UK state-school students and a free educational resource, ComposerCreate.com. ORA has also launched initiatives for developing composers: in 2019, its Christmas Gift offered free professional recordings to early-career professional composers, and during lockdown an Emergency Composers’ Fund to provide income and work for freelance composers.
ORA is equally ambitious for its next 5 years and beyond, with this new role of Development Manager forming a critical part of our forward-looking vision. The successful candidate will take the lead on the charity’s fundraising activities and strategy, securing revenue from individual donors, Trusts & Foundations, corporate sponsors, public funding, donor events, and working closely with the Chief Executive to ensure that ORA can continue its ground-breaking projects and reward its supporters with the attention they deserve.
Deadline: 1 August 2021
