The Polyphony Choir is seeking an organist of grade six or above, with a desire to improve. Good sight-reading would be an advantage; patience with note bashing, and a good sense of humour would be invaluable!
Most importantly, the ability to fulfil a commitment to two Tuesday evening rehearsals (20:00 to 21:30) each month, and 11:30 Masses on first Sundays (not August) plus Christ the King (11:30), Christmas Carol Concert (14:30), Christmas Midnight (23:30), Maundy Thursday (20:00), Good Friday (15:00) and Easter Vigil (20:30).
The stipend is negotiable according to experience. Practice time on the instrument is available by agreement.
The Choir would welcome anyone interested in filling the position to go along and meet them all. You would be welcome to spend a couple of Tuesdays with them without commitment.
This well renowned choir, which is an integral part of parish life, will celebrate its 50th year in 2019, and enjoys a happy social aspect to its work. You will become part of a great and happy team!
Please contact our Director of Music, Tony Price on 020 8647 4435 or email@example.com for further information on this opportunity.
