Job Description: 

St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Greenville, NC, a program-size parish in the Diocese of East Carolina, invites applications for The Cathee Jean Huber Organ Scholar, which will be available summer of 2021.  The organ scholar appointment is an assistant position that provides the opportunity for organists to learn and apply their skills in service playing, in the context of a parish music program firmly rooted in the Anglican choral tradition. Duties include sharing in the weekly playing of hymns, service music and voluntaries, accompanying the choirs for psalms and anthems, and deputizing for the organist-choirmaster.  The position can be tailored to meet the needs of both the music program and the organ scholar.  The organ is an outstanding 3-manual, 58 stop French symphonic style instrument built by C.B. Fisk in 2005, residing in the church’s 6-second acoustic. The church also houses a 9-ft Steinway concert grand piano and a Hubbard harpsichord. This position is normally held by a graduate or undergraduate student as a supplement to study in sacred music at East Carolina University, but enrollment in school is not a condition of employment.  Candidates are encouraged to consider combining a BM/MM degree or artist diploma through ECU as a complete educational package. The position is 12-15 hours/week. Free housing, a modest salary, and private organ studies are included. Applications will remain open until the position is filled. Interested parties should contact Andrew Scanlon, MM, FAGO, Organist-Choirmaster
