Bethany Presbyterian Church
Part-Time Choral Support (Bass)
Bethany Presbyterian Church has a historic music program with an adult choir, a youth choir and two adult bell choirs. One tenor staff member currently supports the Adult Choir, which numbers around 25 regular participants. The choral repertoire performed reflects diverse sacred traditions. The choir presents two special Music Sundays (larger works/programs with guest instrumentalists) each year. The church membership exceeds 500, and typical service attendance varies from 150-200. We maintain a Holtkamp organ (3 manuals / 34 ranks) and a Steinway grand piano.
The choir sings at one 10 am worship service every Sunday September through May, and rehearses on Thursday nights. Choral support staff are responsible for attending all scheduled rehearsals and services as requested by the Director of Music. In addition to the worship schedule, Choral Support staff may have the opportunity to sing at funerals, weddings, and other special events throughout the year.
We are seeking an experienced bass choral singer who can provide positive leadership for our volunteer choir members. Collegemusic students with significant choral experience are welcome to apply.
This is a part-time position, available September 2017.
Schedule: Support the adult choir and congregation through active participation in worship on Sundays (9:15AM warmup/10AM service, September through May).
Provide support to the bass section at weekly choir rehearsal (Thursday evenings, 7:15-9PM, September through May).
