|St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church in Yardley, Pennsylvania is searching for an Interim Music Director to serve the parish from late-January or February until June, while we prepare to call a permanent Music Director. We are a warm community of faith with a vibrant musical tradition. The position has been filled by a sole Music Director working approximately 15 hours per week to plan and prepare music for one service a week, while leading our adult and children’s choirs, and playing the organ. For the interim, we are dividing the position between organists who are responsible for playing on Sundays, and an Interim Music Director responsible for all other aspects of musical leadership, particularly: dedicated leadership of the adult and children’s choirs; collaborative liturgical planning; and oversight of the organist. The Interim does not need to play the organ and will be welcome to apply for the permanent position when the time comes.
St. Andrew’s is known for our love of music and worship, warm community, and social outreach. We seek candidates who have a strong familiarity and love for the Episcopal liturgy as well as different liturgical and musical traditions, a facility with working with both adults and children, and who will work collaboratively with our Rector to support worship through music. Our instruments include a three-manual, 40-rank pipe organ, a harpsicord, and three upright pianos. Our adult and junior choirs currently rehearse on Wednesday evenings, and at 9am on Sundays immediately before the 10:15 service.
Yardley is located 35 minutes northeast of Center City Philadelphia, 25 minutes from Princeton, and 10 minutes from Trenton.
The Interim Director of Music is a part-time position (10-15 hours/week). Compensation is highly competitive and commensurate with education and experience.
Start date is flexible, with the Interim(s) to start no later than February.
