We are a dynamic parish in the heart of Silicon Valley looking for a creative church musician with imagination, love of collaboration, and an eclectic passion for different genres of music.

We are looking for a music and choir director to work with us on Sunday mornings and one choir rehearsal per week (currently on Thursday evenings, though the day/time is negotiable). This is a part-time position that we hope will grow in time. The ability to help lead the choir and congregation through change with love and pastoral spirit is absolutely necessary. We are trying some creative and different approaches to worship and are open to new things as well as old. We have an acoustically beautiful space, enthusiastic choir, lovely grand piano, and 36-rank pipe organ, and we want to make a bold, joyful, fun noise with all kinds of music from jazz to chant, Bach to soul, world music to traditional hymnody.

Want to have fun? Come help us expand our understanding of sacred music and help us to fall in love with lusty singing!

An M.A. in Organ or Piano Performance or Choral Conducting or equivalent proficiency is required, and we are able to offer an annual salary for this position that is within AGO guidelines.
