Staff Choral Singers
The Holy Name of Jesus Catholic Community (HNOJ) invites applications for two staff singer positions in all voice parts (SATB). The singers will serve as section leaders for the HNOJ Choir most Sundays. Opportunities to sing together as an 8-voice schola for Masses are also scheduled throughout the year as well as cantor/solo opportunities. The full 2022-2023 choral season runs from the second weekend in September through the first weekend in June. One (soprano) of the eight positions is currently filled. These positions are new to Holy Name of Jesus Catholic Community in the Wayzata/Plymouth area. We seek to build upon a well-established choral program.
Scheduling is usually a two-hour call on Sunday mornings. There is a rehearsal at 9:30am to 10:30am and then the choir sings at the 10:30am Mass. Scheduling is meant to be flexible, but successful applicants will be asked to make a prioritized commitment to HNOJ liturgies during the Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, and the Easter/Triduum holidays. Singers can expect between 50 and 60 calls during the full choir season and are paid $80 per two-hour call. Weddings and funeral opportunities are available, and you are paid on a different call/fee schedule.
Strong vocal performance, sight-reading and social skills are required.
Please include with your application a curriculum vitae and appropriate references. Recordings are also welcomed. Auditions may be scheduled following the submission of materials. Please send to:
