The Adult Choir of St. James' Church, Long Branch, NJ
St. James' Church (Episcopal/Anglican) is currently accepting applications for all voice parts in its professional choir. The music ministry at St. James' Church has a proud history of providing sacred music of the highest caliber in the Anglican Choral Tradition and is an affliate member of the Royal School of Church Music in America. The choir sings at most Sunday morning masses, in addition to Advent/Christmas/Epiphany Lessons and Carols, Christmas Eve, Ash Wednesday, Holy Week/Easter, afternoon Choral Evensong and Compline services, and also Dicoesan events requiring chorister participation. An annual Christmas Messiah performance has been recently resurrected and highlights from the most recent concert may be found here: http://stjames-longbranch.org/media.php?pageID=5
The upcoming 2014-15 season runs from mid-September through late May. Sundays only, no normal weekday rehearsal commitment (except Ash Wednesday and Holy Week). Music and schedules are distributed in advance and the expectation is that music is learned outside of rehearsal. Excellent sight-reading ability and ensemble singing skills are required. Solo opportunities are available.
Fee is $100 per Sunday.
Located five blocks from the beach, 10 minutes from Long Branch NJ Transit train station/exit 105 off GS Parkway.
To be considered, please submit a cover letter/resume and a solo audio clip to St. James' Church's Director of Music/Organist Jim Douglas, at email@example.com. Deadline for application submission extended to August 25, and auditions will be scheduled thereafter on an individual basis.
