St John the Evangelist
We are looking for a talented and enthusiastic Organist seeking to develop their church musicianship and liturgical awareness in a supportive and challenging environment.
Working alongside our RSCM-affiliated robed choir under the patient direction of our Director of Music, the Scholar will develop the full range of skills of a church organist from hymn, plainchant and anthem accompaniment through to improvising, conducting, giving recitals and arranging music as the Scholar so wishes.
We are a friendly liberal Anglican church worshipping in the catholic tradition with a lively and innovative music department. We are sure that the successful applicant will find their time at St John’s richly rewarding, and support will be given if the Scholar decides to pursue further professional opportunities within church music. Our inaugural scholar (2017-18) is currently organ scholar at Robinson College, Cambridge.
Applicants should have a passion for sacred choral and organ music, and be of ABRSM Grade 5 standard on the organ (or equivalent ability) and possess a good memory for music and moderate sight-reading ability.
Applications will be accepted until Sunday 31st March. Shortlisted applicants will be invited to interview and audition.
