Job Description

The Parish of Saints Joachim and Anne is seeking a highly skilled Choir Director to conduct the Sunday morning Mass adult choir. This choir sings weekly September through May. Rehearsals currently take place an hour before Mass; it may be possible to add a weeknight rehearsal. The choir has an accompanist for Mass and rehearsal, though the ability to play organ or piano is appreciated. The choir has between twelve and twenty non-auditioned members and no paid section leaders. Choir members are used to four-part signing, with varying levels of music reading skills. The parish hymnal is Gather 3; we are interested in expanding our use of the Church’s treasury of sacred choral music.
