Choir director sought

(Friends of Beaver Creek: Do you know a music student, retired music lover, or just anyone who might be interested in this position? If so, let Reba know! . . . mildly disguised email address below.)

Beaver Creek Church’s Worship Focus Team is looking for someone to direct the Adult Choir beginning in September. The position comes with modest pay* but abundant thanks! Candidates should have some training or experience in choral and sacred music, but an extensive background is not necessary. Duties include music selection, leading of rehearsal, directing the choir about two times per month September through May, and leading congregational singing on choir days.

The choir rehearses at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesdays, with a short break after Christmas. New voices are always welcome! Anyone interested in the choir director’s position should contact Reba Kline (klinereba at gmail.com). Nominations, recommendations and self-nominations are all welcome.

*The position is budgeted for a $2000 honorarium, paid in equal monthly installments September through May.
