Director of Music & Organist at St Thomas the Apostle, Hanwell, W7
Music is a central part of our worship, mission and life as a parish. St Thomas’ is strongly committed to choral and organ music within a liturgical setting centred on the Eucharist. We have an active four-part choir with around 15 members, plus additional members who sing at our ‘specials’. In 2016 our Walker organ was fully restored.
Our current DoM has re-located, so we are now looking for a Director of Music & Organist. The DoM will direct, supervise and, importantly, develop the existing SATB and Junior choir. We are very fortunate in having very able and willing volunteer ‘Sub-Organists’, which we hope will allow the DoM greater opportunities. You will be responsible for organising and leading the rehearsal schedule and Sunday services as required using your demonstrable musical ability with choirs, and ensure Organist cover for all services requiring musical provision – self or others as appropriate.
Importantly, we are seeking someone to develop and execute strategies to increase choir members and, new and existing links with external bodies.
