Position Description/Responsibilities

Provide service music for 10 am Sunday Service including Gathering Music, Prelude, Postlude, hymns and accompanying occasional soloists.  We have a band which plays once a month, typically September through May which actually gives the keyboardist that Sunday off.  We have a seasonal choir for Christmas and Easter so this position plays for rehearsals the 6 weeks preceding Christmas and Easter on Sundays immediately following worship for 1.5 hours.

We only have a few weddings and funerals and those are compensated directly by the families.

Our sanctuary has the largest pipe organ in Salem (featured on Pelland Organ Company You Tube Page: pelland organ co tabernacle church) and an awesome 1870’s Steinway that was superbly restored.  We have a Knabe Baby Grand Piano in our acoustically live Emerson Hall where worship is conducted in the coldest and hottest months.

Compensation is $12,000 per annum with 4 weeks paid vacation.  No other benefits.
