Music Director Position available

Summer Job or Full Time Job

Church Pianist/Organist

(Director of Music)

Grace Lutheran Church

1 West Montgomery Street

Johnstown, NY 12095


We are a small church in the Capital District of  Upstate New York looking for a pianist/organist to play for us on Sunday mornings at 10 am beginning July 7th. All pianists, including College and High School Students are encouraged to apply. This could be a great summer job or more.

Ultimately, our goal is to hire an organist or pianist to play the Lutheran liturgy, hymns, prelude and postlude music at each Sunday morning church service and other services such as, but not limited to, Ash Wednesday, Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, and Christmas Eve. In addition there might be times when you would be asked by a family if you could play for a wedding or funeral.

You would work cooperatively with the Pastor to select hymns and participate in the planning of music for worship. In addition you would assist with music for special occasions that might arise such as a Sunday School Christmas Pageant, High School Baccalaureate and Martin Luther King Jr. Service if held at our church.

Ideally, in addition to the above requirements, we would like the organist or pianist to recruit, rehearse and accompany a weekly adult Chancel Choir from September to June. You would prepare an anthem for each Sunday morning with rehearsals held weekly.

Also, we would love to continue having our three octave bell choir play several times per year and having vocal or instrumental presentations by members of the congregation.

Salary will be discussed at the interview and based on experience.
