Third Baptist Church, located in the Grand Center district of St. Louis, is seeking a soprano section leader to begin in September. Responsibilities include a weekly Wednesday evening rehearsal (7 – 8:30 pm) and Sunday morning service (10:30 rehearsal for 11 am service). Additional calls include Christmas Eve, Ash Wednesday, and Holy Wednesday. Five Sundays per year are not choral, but section leaders may arrange for substitutes for additional absences, subject to approval. Compensation is $40 per attendance, so a typical week yields $80.
The repertoire is eclectic, including premieres and commissions, with a particular focus on women composers. Past lists are available on the church’s website. Resources for the choir include the second largest pipe organ in the city, and a new Steinway D grand piano. The church describes itself as “a different kind of Baptist.” For more information or to set up an audition please email Director of Music, Dr. Philip Barnes, at pbarnes (at) third-baptist.org.
