Re: Section Lead (SATB choir)
The Parish of St Clement, North Vancouver is seeking to engage four section leads (SATB) to support our Sunday morning choral program.
Hours: Three (3) hours total per session for 10 sessions each term
Provide musical leadership for section (i.e. baritone SL provides musical leadership for baritones). Musical leadership may entail anything from answering questions such as “what songs were rehearsed last week?” to specific technical questions such as “is there an easy way to make a successful jump for this tritone?”. In the event that the SL is not able to answer the question, they may confer with other section leads or the Music Director.
Take careful note of details in rehearsal, such as phrasing, breathing, pronunciation etc., so that exact details can be communicated to members.
Be willing to take initiative in the absence of the Music Director (e.g. lead a warm-up).
Strive for personal artistic growth
