RC Church in Niles, Illinois (located 30 minutes from downtown Chicago and due east of O’Hare) seeks experienced singers for soprano, tenor, and bass choral positions.
Possess training and ability to sing a wide range of choral repertoire with warm vocal tone; maturity and responsibility; reasonable sight-reading, good musical, and excellent interpersonal skills.
Commit to rehearsal/performance schedule, mid-September through early-June. Generally two choral calls per week: a Thursday evening rehearsal 7-8:30 pm (occasionally longer if near a major choral presentation); and a Sunday morning rehearsal & liturgy; extra calls for events throughout the season include Christmas Eve/Day, Holy Week. Serve as section leaders – teaching through a fine example of singing rather than spoken direction. Prepare repertoire outside of rehearsal in order to lead section properly. Repertoire from chant and polyphony to wonderful 21st century sacred choral music. Major works presented 3-4 times each year.
Stipend-per-call is competitive. Additional opportunities for those who serve as cantors for non- choral masses, weddings, and funerals. Schedule an audition: contact Director of Music at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 702 806-8421.
