Calvary Lutheran Church seeks a part-time (10-16 hours/week) Music Director, who is passionate about leading music in a community with a strong commitment to an eclectic blend of classical, gospel, global, Taizé/Iona, traditional, and recently composed music. This person will work with a committed choir of approximately 10-20 members and occasional ensembles (most recently women and children), coordinate special music, and assist in leading the congregation in a variety of liturgical settings (from traditional Lutheran to modern variations), which speak to long-time people of faith as well as newcomers and seekers. Instruments include: baby grand piano, wonderful recently refurbished pipe organ, set of hand bells, electric piano, and variety of percussion instruments. This person will accompany weekly worship with Eucharist (Sunday at 10:00 a.m.), festivals (Christmas Eve, Maundy Thursday, Good Friday), provide musical leadership for Wednesday evening services during Advent and Lent (utilizing Holden Prayer Around the Cross, Holden Evening Prayer), and assist with the annual Christmas program (Sunday morning). Choir rehearsals historically are on Wednesday evenings, but flexible. The Music Director attends the Worship Committee meetings (every other month) and plans worship with the pastor.
