Maple Park United Methodist Church is actively seeking a musician to support our Children’s Choir. The position is part time. The Choir performs every 4th and 5th Sunday of each month. Rehearsals are held on the 3rd, 4th and 5th Saturday. Our Children range in age from 6-14 years old.
There is good parental support. Repertoire leans heavily toward Contemporary Gospel (Smallwood, Kee, Franklin) but also includes hymns and spirituals. The strongest of candidates will have a background in music education, the ability to sight-read grand staff, the ability to play by ear and a level of comfort with many styles of music including Blues and Jazz.
An interview and audition will be required. If the position is offered, The UMC Safe Sanctuary policy requires a successful candidate background check. Maple Park UMC was established in 1963 on the far South Side of Chicago and serves the communities of Maple Park, Morgan Park and West Pullman.
Resumes can be submitted via email to: mapleparkUMC@yahoo.com. Please place “Children’s Musician” in the subject line.
