St. Francis of the Islands Episcopal Church in Savannah, GA is seeking a part-time organist and choir director (approximately 8-10 hours per week) to provide music and direct the choir at the 10:30 am service on Sunday morning and other special services as required. Special services primarily follow the liturgical calendar, to include Principal Feasts of the Church, Ash Wednesday, and the services of Holy Week.
St. Francis has a small choir, with rehearsals currently taking place on Sunday mornings prior to worship. Prior to the pandemic, the choir rehearsed on Wednesday evenings, and these rehearsals may resume at some point in the future.
Candidates are to have proficiency at the organ to lead congregational singing and perform organ repertoire. Candidates should also have a demonstrated ability to rehearse and direct choral music.
Knowledge of or experience in the Episcopal Church preferred. The ideal candidate will be interested in teaching and mentoring students in the choir's inaugural class of choral scholars, and also serving as a resource for music education in the parish.
Salary range is $12,000-14,400 per year, based on education and experience. Interested candidates may send a letter of interest, resume, and references to the Reverend Ian Lasch, firstname.lastname@example.org.
