Job Description
All Saints’ is an historic church in downtown Frederick with a growing intergenerational community. We are seeking a musician and choir leader (minimum of 1-2 years’ experience) for our 9am Sunday ‘Great Hall’ worship service.

If you are called to serve at All Saints’, you will plan music for worship and grow an existing choir, developing ways to involve children and young families to creatively engage the entire community in our music ministry. Good keyboard skills are required. We have an organ and baby grand piano in the Great Hall. Other instruments also work well in this flexible worship environment. This worship service requires a creative heart, a clear understanding of the framework of Episcopal liturgy, and the use of a variety of music resources to engage all ages and all musical abilities. The position is an opportunity for a music leader who looks for ways to invite the community into the experience of making liturgical music as full participants instead of passive consumers and observers of music performance; and, therefore, requires a person with a sense of humor, a light touch, a steady hand, and a willingness to innovate.

The position requires 8-10 hours/week with room for growth. You would recruit, build, and rehearse the choir for the 9am service, and provide music leadership on Sundays and other Holy Days according to the liturgical calendar. You would work in supportive partnership with our music director and in collaboration with the clergy to plan engaging and transformative worship.
