Accompanist position at Zion Lutheran Church

CHOIR ACCOMPANIST: Zion Lutheran Church, 144th and Ida, is in need of a
choir accompanist for the 2017-2018 season, approximately the end of August
through the end of April. We have a 20+ voice choir that rehearses
Wednesday evening for an hour, usually 7 to 8 p.m. with adjustments during
Advent and Lent to approximately 7:45 to 8:45 p.m. The choir sings 2 to 3
Sundays per month, more during the holiday seasons. The choir can sing
either for the 8 a.m or the 10:30 a.m. Sunday service, occasionally for
both on special occasions. Accompanying would be mostly on the piano,
although depending on the interests and capabilities of the accompanist
could sometimes be on organ. At times, an instrumentalist will also be
used. The ideal candidate would be an advanced keyboard student, looking
for experience in accompanying, as this would be a one year position at
this time. Compensation would be $50 per rehearsal and $50 per service
that the choir sings. The choir director holds an MM degree. Most of the
music sung is either SAB or SA/TB, pretty much standard Protestant
repertoire. Contact person, is the Rev. Stephen Bartelt,
stephenrbartelt@yahoo.com, or (402) 496-6140

Music Ministry Position in the Archdiocese of Omaha

Dear All,

Please share this with colleagues, AGO and NPM chapters, and graduates of your Institutions.
I am excited to announce a new full-time position at the Archdiocesan level in Omaha.  The Minister of Music Formation will work with and support the Church’s music ministry of parishes, priests, and educators. Not residing in a particular parish, but available to multiple parishes, this Minister will set up additional musical support and teaching in the Archdiocese, with a particular access and support for rural areas and small parishes.
Complementing the Archdiocesan Music Director position which is primarily a “Practitioner of Liturgical Music who also teaches,”  the new position will be a “Teacher of Liturgical Music who also practices.”  I’m very excited for this new concept, in which the individual will serve in collaboration with other ministries in the Archdiocese and have the opportunity for creativity in Liturgical, Musical, and Pastoral Ministry.
The Archdiocese of Omaha is a great place to work under the leadership of Archbishop George J. Lucas – and under the patroness of our beloved Saint Cecilia, patron of the Archdiocese as well as musicians!
Please share with people you think would be a good fit.  To see a job description and/or apply go to www.archomaha.org and scroll to the gold colored section at the bottom of the home page to the Careers link.  The search will proceed until the position is filled, with a flexible start-date.
