Pembroke Academy of Music Director – Part Time Vacancy – September start
We are looking for someone who is passionate about community and broadening horizons through excellent music making, to lead our Pembroke Academy of Music (PAM) project. PAM is an open access music programme providing an opportunity for 50 children aged seven and above, living in the immediate vicinity of Pembroke House to have musical tuition which most of them would not otherwise be able to afford. The regular Wednesday evening programme comprises instrumental tuition in small groups (violin/viola/cello, flute/clarinet, trumpet/trombone and percussion), ensembles, musicianship classes and Community Choir.
External events and performance opportunities form an important part of what PAM offers. Recent opportunities have included singing at the Kings Place A Capella Festival, National Portrait Gallery and St Paul’s Cathedral and; performances at the Southbank Centre and with Mahogany Opera Group. Four children are currently members of the Royal Opera House Junior Chorus, performing on the main stage in this season’s production of Carmen.

The six-bedroom shared house attached to Pembroke House is a wonderful asset and the envy of other community centres. We’re fortunate to host a remarkable group of men and women in their early twenties who are passionate about living in and building community. Each resident commits up to five hours a week of work with a project that we run or host. The Residency was not refurbished in 2009, when the rest of the building was overhauled, and the Trustees are now exploring options for enhancing it.
