Job Openings for Tenors and Bass-Baritones

August 8, 2017

St. James Cathedral, Seattle, has openings beginning in September for one tenor and one bass-baritone singer to join the Cathedral Cantorei, the professional ensemble that supports the volunteer Cathedral Choir. There are regular Thursday rehearsals (7:30-9:30 pm) and Sunday morning Masses (9:00 am call for 10:00 am Mass) from September through May. Cantorei also sings for extra liturgies, including Readings and Carols, and an annual New Year’s Eve concert. Availability during Christmas and Easter weeks is essential. Solo opportunities may arise throughout the season for which each Cantorei member is expected to audition.

The successful applicant will have a flexible voice that is comfortable singing a wide range of choral repertoire (including Renaissance polyphony that requires minimal vibrato), the ability to blend within an ensemble, excellent sightreading skills, and a personable and professional attitude suitable to acting as a choral leader to volunteers.

We are interested in expanding our substitute singer list as well, so if you are only available sporadically, please don't hesitate to audition (but let us know that you are auditioning for the sub list).

Pay is competitive and has recently been raised. For more information and to apply for an audition, please contact Dr. Paul A. Thornock, Director of Music, at pthornock@stjames-cathedral.org. For more information about music at St. James, please visit www.stjames-cathedral.org/music.
