Soprano & Tenor Sections Leaders/Soloists
Calvary Presbyterian Church in Pacific Heights, San Francisco, has openings for a Soprano Section Leader/Soloist and a Tenor Section-Leader/Soloist for our busy Choral program. Section Leaders are part-time employees who attend regular Thursday evening rehearsals, Sunday rehearsals and 10:00 a.m. worship, as well as concert rehearsals and performances. Excellent sight reading and overall musicianship are a must along with an understanding of and appreciation for the culture and functioning of a large church choir.
Calvary is one of the Bay Area's most highly respected church music programs with a long tradition of excellent liturgical music and choral & orchestra concerts. Our soloists are not just "hired hands" but highly valued members of an active, caring community of music lovers and worshippers. Flexibility is paramount as we sing a wide array of musical styles from the great sacred canon to folk music and gospel to off-beat contemporary arrangements and even some musical theater. Calvary is a progressive, open & affirming community.
Pay is based on a combination of Thursday and Sunday calls, but averages out to at minimum $100 per call ($750-$1,000 per month depending on the time of year). All members of our choir and music staff must be fully vaccinated for COVID-19 to participate, masks are worn at all times, and distancing and other safety precautions are in place until further notice. Please contact Michael Conley, Dir. of Music Ministries, to schedule an audition.
Please email a resume/summary of relevant experience to Michael Conley, Dir. of Music Ministries who will schedule auditions by appointment. Thank you!
