The Music Ministry at FPC employs eight professional singers who provide leadership for the
volunteer Chancel Choir (approximately 30 singers). We are seeking exceptional ensemble singers
who are excellent readers, have superb pitch, and demonstrate the flexibility to perform in a variety of musical styles, both within the ensemble and as a soloist. Choral conducting and/or organ/piano skills are also highly desirable (additional stipends are generally available for conducting or playing), as is church choir experience. But the most basic requirements are a “team player” mentality, and the ability to provide musical support by singing with confidence, accuracy, and beauty of tone. If interested please contact Greg Homza for more information.
