The Church of St. Martin-in-the-Fields (St. Martin’s), Philadelphia, seeks to appoint four professional Choir Section Leaders to begin September 2021. One Section Leader per part (SATB) will be appointed. Countertenors are most welcome to apply.

Section Leaders receive $90 per service, and $85 per rehearsal, with extra fees for weddings/funerals as required through the year. This typically amounts to over $8,000 each academic year.

Music is an integral part of the worship and our aims and mission at the Church of St. Martin-in-the-Fields. We aim to offer music as an extension to prayer, a force for good in the community, and an educational outreach tool in Philadelphia and beyond.

Candidates selected for an audition will be expected to perform two contrasting pieces (accompanied by the Director of Music) that best demonstrate their abilities, technique, and musicianship. Candidates will also be asked to sing verses of a hymn from the 1982 Hymnal and to perform sight-reading exercises.
