Job Description
The St. John’s Choir, in West Hartford, announces a position opening:

BASS CHORAL SINGER

The Choral Scholars at St. John’s provide the choral backbone of the 35 voice intergenerational St. John’s Choir. In addition to learning and helping to teach great Anglican choral works to our younger choristers and volunteer singers, the Choral Scholars strive to create and participate in a wonderful community of music-making and the worship of God – a true “church within a church.”

Commitment:
• Sunday mornings during the program year, including Christmas Eve and Easter.
• Wednesday evening rehearsals, approximately 2-3 times per month, including dinner.
• Special events, usually on weekends, 4 or 5 per program year. See www.reddoormusic.org.

Compensation:
$65 per appearance

Requirements:
Choral Scholars should have a positive attitude, an appreciation for great sacred choral music, and excellent vocal and sight-reading skills. Ability to provide a clear, blended, mostly senza vibrato tone is a must. Regular, on-time (early) attendance sets the needed professional example for our volunteers. Good communication skills, and a demonstrated desire to become part of a musical community are a must.

Benefits:
St. John’s is a beautiful, safe, and open place to share your musical gifts, with a talented and accomplished choir. A great resume builder and opportunity to build your repertoire of choral works are just part of the equation; the connection to experienced musicians and spiritual renewal that takes place in choral singing are gifts you’ll carry for your entire life.
