St. Michael and All Angels Episcopal Church in Dallas, TX has vacancies for regular and substitute staff singers in alto, tenor, and bass.
Staff singers function in three capacities: 1) as part of the Saint Michael Choir, the church’s adult choir of approximately 40 voices (15 of which are staff singers) who sing weekly at the Sunday 11:00 service; 2) as professional ATB and sometimes soprano 2 with the church’s boy and girl choristers singing soprano at the Sunday 9:00 service; and 3) as their own ensemble singing in place of the Saint Michael Choir or choristers during breaks (e.g. summer break, spring break, etc.).
Choral experience, exceptional sight reading, and enjoyment of singing in a healthy non-vibrato choral sound are essential. Repertoire can at times be demanding, is primarily based in the English cathedral tradition, and also regularly includes modern repertoire and orchestral Masses. Solo opportunities are available. The regular weekly schedule includes Wednesdays from 7:00 (sometimes 6:30) to 9:00 PM, and Sundays from 8:15 AM to 12:10 PM (with 3 breaks). Sunday late afternoon choral services are an average of once a month. Competitive call fee.
