We’re hiring!

St. Olave’s Anglican Church seeks to appoint a Tenor Section Lead for the 2023-2024 liturgical year, beginning September 7, 2023.

We are a multi-generational parish dedicated to sharing the Gospel through prayer and community.

The SATB, semi-professional choir currently consists of 10 members.

Responsibilities include providing musical leadership at Thursday evening rehearsals (7:30 to 9:00) and Sunday morning liturgies (9:30 to approximately 12:00), often as the sole tenor. The choir also sings at several special services throughout the year. The fee is $50/call.

The ideal candidate will display:

  • Strong sight-reading and technical skills.
  • Experience performing at a high level in a scheduled liturgical context.
  • Good personal skills within a small ensemble environment.
  • An interest in the liturgical and musical traditions that underpin St. Olave’s.

Familiarity with Anglican worship is an asset.
