Choral Section Leader (Alto, Tenor, Bass)

St. Michael’s Episcopal Church in Marblehead, MA seeks paid choral section leaders. Alto, tenor, or bass needed. The ideal candidate will be able to: lead and support their section vocally while blending with the complete ensemble, sight-read choral parts proficiently, sing occasional solos, relate well with their colleagues, and show up to work early. Experience singing in the Episcopal Church or other Anglican traditions preferred but not required. Please also note that there is a tasteful use of incense during Sunday services. Must be available from September through mid-June for one weekly Sunday service at 10:00am (following a 9:00am rehearsal), one weekly rehearsal on Thursdays at 7:30pm, one monthly service of Evensong and Benediction on the first Sunday of the month at 5:00pm (with 4:00pm rehearsal), Christmas Eve in the evening, and several additional evening services and rehearsals, including the days leading up to Easter. Please note that applicants must have their own means of transportation—public transportation to the church on Sunday mornings is not possible because of timing and location. Compensation is $55 per call. Please submit a resume to the Director of Music, Raymond Hawkins at

Note: If COVID-19 restrictions do not permit us to have a full choir at the beginning of this fall, the responsibilities of the choral section leaders will look somewhat different in the meantime. This may include singing more solos and duets with adherence whatever social-distancing protocols are required by the government and the Episcopal Diocese of Massachusetts. This may be discussed further during the interview process. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have.
