Highlands Presbyterian Church, 6909 Smoky Row Road, Columbus, is in need of the following part-time professionals, paid positions, starting late August 2018:
• Choir Director, or combined as Organist/Pianist/Director
These positions are available on a short term (less than a year) or long term basis, and may easily be coordinated with other occupations or college schedules of the applicants. Currently, the choir rehearses Sunday mornings before the service, with occasional additional rehearsals for special events. Positions require minimum time, but creative efforts, flexibility, and proficiency to accomplish agreed goals will be expected.
Highlands is a smaller, modular design Presbyterian church, with an intimate acoustically accurate sanctuary space and a capacity for 200 congregants. For a church of this size, Highlands has a vibrant choral program, with a large repertoire of classical, modern, and other genre music in its library and a choir averaging 10 good readers with strong voices (doubling in size for special events).
Highlands’ music program welcomes new challenges in instrumental and choral presentation, and has enjoyed performing great works by Handel, Saint-Saens, Vivaldi, Rutter, Biebl, and others. Highlands has connections to the Columbus Symphony, MCO, and CMC, with frequent classical presentations in its sanctuary. Highlands’ Scottish Presbyterian heritage has been celebrated with bagpipes, Celtic harp, and dancers, during special events.
Join us on Friday, August 3 at 7 PM, when Highlands will host Columbus Symphony Principal Clarinetist, David Thomas, his sister, Amy, flautist from Maryland, and Hector Garcia at the piano, current organist at Highlands, for a program of American composers Eric Ewazen, Gary Schocker, Lowell Liebermann, and Brahms' heartwarming Sonata in F Minor. All events at Highlands are free and open to the public.
