Interim Director of Music
Job Description: Interim Director of Music
The Episcopal Church of Saint Clement
The Episcopal Church of Saint Clement—a small, energetic, enthusiastic, and welcoming congregation in Alexandria, VA—currently seeks an Interim Director of Music. This position will begin the week of September 5, 2022, and last approximately three (3) months, with the possibility of an extension. The interim also may apply for the permanent position. The interim will be responsible for music and choral activities at Saint Clement.
Music resources at Saint Clement include a single-manual (plus pedals) pipe organ, a Baldwin grand piano, several instrumentalists (flutist and clarinetist) who participate weekly in worship, and a small but eager choir. The congregation is comfortable singing a cappella, so there are many opportunities to be creative in a small-church environment.
Responsibilities of the Interim Director of Music include, but are not limited to:
Rehearse and direct the Saint Clement Choir: currently 5–8 singers and instrumentalists. Rehearsals are held Thursdays at 7:30PM; Sunday warmups start at 9:30AM.
Play piano and/or organ and lead choir for one Sunday service at 10:00AM and occasional special services.
Work with Saint Clement’s Rector to plan music for worship, including hymns and service music from the 1982 Hymnal and Lift Every Voice and Sing II, and choral anthems.
Provide music information to the Parish Administrator for the Sunday bulletin (by or before Tuesday mornings for the following Sunday).
Experience with Episcopal/Anglican musical and liturgical tradition is preferred, but not required. Salary is paid on weekly basis. This position reports to the Rector of the Church of Saint Clement: Rev. Robin Razzino.
