Music Director and Organist

Following the retirement of our long-standing Organist and Choirmaster, St. Mary’s Anglican Church of Richmond Hill, ON, seeks a creative, energetic, and technically competent person to assume leadership of our keyboard (organ and piano), choral, and praise band music. The successful applicant will have experience in both traditional church liturgical and contemporary “praise and worship” styles. He/she will have a firm commitment to the communal mission and vision of St. Mary’s, as we “seek to live and make known, in word and action, the good news of God’s love in the world.” The church has two well-maintained pipe organs (one in the main sanctuary and another in the Chapel), and a Nordheimer baby grand piano. A choir of up to 15 SATB voices currently sings weekly for nine months of the year. A recently established praise band plays at least once a month at our new family service. With rehearsal time, Sunday services, and regular meetings with clergy, it is estimated that this part-time position will demand 12 hours a week. There will be an annual evaluation with clergy and wardens. Remuneration will be commensurate with experience and qualifications as described in the RCCO Salary Guidelines. Applications, which will be treated in strictest confidence, will be received until July 31 or until the post is filled.
