Organist and Choir Director (Posted Dec. 10, 2014)

St. John's Episcopal Church in Olde Towne Portsmouth is seeking an organist/choirmaster.  Scope of work includes one Sunday liturgy, one Wednesday liturgy, and holy days along with weekly choir rehearsal and coordination with special musicians for feast day celebrations.  

Using AGO docments as a guide, we are looking for someone who will spend an average of 6-10 hours/week in this ministry.  The principal work is organ for the 11am Sunday Eucharist and Feast Days with choir.  The Wednesday evening Eucharist requires no additional preparation as it uses music for the following Sunday and precedes choir rehearsal.  Music planning is collaborative with the rector.  For festivals we require coordination with other musicians.

St. John's is at a crossroads, and we are looking for someone who can collaborate with our rector to chart a future direction for St. John's traditional Eucharist.  We have a firm belief in diverse worship and we are not seeking to replicate musical styles present in the 9am contemporary Eucharist.  There is much quality liturgical music, both nationally and internationally from which we can draw.  Our goal is that folks are drawn into a deeper relationship with God in Jesus Christ through the music we offer.  We are seeking to use the gifts of the person God calls to help shape our future rather than to set a plan and find someone to fit in that box.

Please send cover letter, resume/cv, and references to admin@stjohnsportsmouth.org.
