St James Anglican Church, Carleton Place seeks a permanent music director to begin November 2017.
Duties: 1. Provide music for two worship services on Sunday mornings.
2. Accompany and/or direct choir practices every Thursday evening. (Sept. to June)
We have a baby grand piano, and a 1904 Casavant organ in the church. The organ was refurbished in 1974, and has been well maintained since then. We have enjoyed a richness of music at St James for many years, and parishioners enjoy the beautiful sound of both instruments.
The ideal candidate is comfortable playing both instruments, and able to play a variety of different types of music. If inexperienced with playing an organ, the candidate must express a willingness to learn. The candidate would provide leadership to our choir, and help them expand music ministry at St James.
The ideal candidate would be open to working with other musicians and perhaps exploring opportunities to work with other area churches in planning music and sharing resources.
Salary will be based on skills and experience.
