We are seeking a cantor to lead congregational singing. Our congregation’s voices are willing but not strong. We are never quite sure when to start and when to stop. It would be wonderful to have a clear voice to follow.

We sing a mixture of Episcopal hymnody and GIA/OCP hymns and refrains. We like it easy to sing and uplifting to the spirit!

We have piano accompaniment the vast majority of the time, with organ once in a while. You would be mic’d and upfront, giving us clear signals. Your range would be low enough, and your leadership encouraging enough to inspire us to sing along.

A solo once in a while is not out of the question if that’s the sort of thing you’d like to offer.

We offer $100 per service.

All auditioners should prepare a 16-bar portion of a sacred solo of their choice; and all singers will be asked to sight-sing one verse of typical Episcopal hymns of our choice.

To audition, please contact

The Rev. Beth Mallon
