We are excited to announce that we are seeking Choral Interns for the 2022-2023 Program Year.
The Church of St. John the Evangelist is a growing and vibrant Parish of the Episcopal Church in Duxbury, MA We have one paid musician, Alan Wittrup, Choirmaster. The choir is volunteer and sings most Sundays between September and late May or early June. Most Sundays there are three or four hymns, some service music, a choral introit, and an anthem in a variety of styles.
Choral Interns do not need to be Episcopalians, or even Christian, so long as you understand that we are, and will be singing music that reflects our theology and values. We are LGBTQ affirming. A simple audition will be required.
Choral Interns will attend one weekly rehearsal and the 10 a.m. Sunday worship service from inception of the program to June, plus additional dates outlined below. There are several Sundays off. Choral Interns would be responsible for finding and paying their own replacement for missed Sundays, in consultation with the Choirmaster. There will be opportunities for small group and quartet singing of more advanced music. Choral Interns will be exposed to a variety of church music and the practice and habit of regular worship leadership in a liturgical setting. They will learn the liturgical year as interpreted by Episcopalians.
Choral Interns will tentatively sing on the following dates. Presently, rehearsals will be on most Thursdays at 7:00 p.m. Compensation will be $125 per call/service, including the rehearsal.
Interested candidates are invited to contact the Parish Administrator, James Olson
