Music Director Vacancy

Trinity Presbyterian Church

640 Berwyn Ave.

Berwyn, PA 19312

Music plays an important role in Trinity's worship service and community outreach, enhancing the minister's message on Sunday mornings and providing a means to express our love for each other and our neighbors through special musical events.  

The Music Director position is currently open.  The responsibilities of this quarter-time position include weekly rehearsals of the adult choir, which averages 15 voices, and leading the choir for one 10:00 am Sunday service.  The Adult Choir does not rehearse between Father's Day and Labor Day.

The Music Director collaborates with the Minister, the Worship Committee, and the Session (the governing body of the church) and is responsible for selecting anthems.  Both the Organist and the Director of Children's Choirs report to the Music Director.  He or she coordinates with the Liturgical Dance and Contemporary Praise teams.  Additionally, the Director recruits performing artists for occasional evening and/or weekend concerts.  Both Sunday worship and the special concerts are enhanced by a classic 25-rank pipe organ and a Mason and Hamlin seven-foot grand piano in the glorious acoustics of an 1880s sanctuary.

The successful applicant will be comfortable with a range of music styles.  A music degree with vocal/choral emphasis is preferred.  Experience directing choirs is a plus.  We are looking for someone who loves to encourage and support others through music.

Kindly submit a statement of interest and resume to the Search Committee at Use 'Music Director Search' as Subject Line.  Resumes will be held in confidence.
