Position Title: Gospel Choir Musical Director
Location: Dublin City
The Gardiner Street Gospel Choir (GSGC) is seeking an energetic, innovative Musical Director with a passion for community and a strong belief that music can change lives.
The GSGC is a community of volunteers that works closely with the Parish Priest and the Musical Director to enrich the celebration of Mass at St Francis Xavier’s Gardiner Street. We choose Gospel Music because of its energy and its power to connect our experience with faith. It is a space for exploration, promoting active involvement rather than passive consumption. Since its foundation 15 years ago it has become a community of discernment, seeking where God is to be found in our experience, in the challenges of culture and world events. We have special solidarity with the poor and the homeless and at its heart is an experience of Jesus in Word and Sacrament.
The job will require availability for Sunday evenings and one evening practice during the week with a break during summer months. There is also some flexibility around public holidays. Salary will be commensurate with experience and ability.
Interested candidates must apply in writing with CV and address how they satisfy the criteria described above. Applications to Fr. Gerard J. Clarke SJ, St Francis Xavier’s, Upper Gardiner Street, Dublin 1 D01 RK07 or by email to [email protected] by Friday 20th May 2016.
