Music Director/Organist

Website Owen Sound Anglicans

Owen Sound Anglican Community seeks a creative and technically competent person who will:

  • assume choral and keyboard musical leadership;
  • direct choral singing with the choir;
  • lead congregational singing within Anglican liturgy;
  • grow the musical and instrumental gifts of the congregation; and,
  • encourage the introduction of new quality Christian music.

The Choir (singing weekly) has between 14-20 SATB voices, and rehearses once weekly on Thursdays.  The congregation is recently reorganized from two Anglican churches, which have had a combined Sunday attendance of about 125.  We are embarking on an exciting adventure as a newly formed Anglican faith community.

It is estimated that this part-time position will require 10-12 hours weekly with remuneration commensurate with experience and qualifications as described in the RCCO salary guidelines. This position is accountable to the churchwardens and, in day-to-day relationships works closely with the parish priest.

The organ, a Casavant – Phoenix hybrid (2005), is a 3-manual, 60-stopped French terraced hybrid with 8 divisions, 4 different specifications, and a total of 115 levels of memory. There is also a K.Kawai grand piano in the church.

Great opportunity for someone starting out or nearing retirement. The successful applicant may offer private music lessons using church facilities.  Owen Sound has a current dearth of qualified music teachers, reasonably priced real estate and heart-stopping natural beauty, along with an excellent regional hospital!

A detailed description of this Music Ministry position is available upon request at [email protected] .  Applications, which will be treated in the strictest confidence, will be received until August 31, or until the post is filled.
