Redeemer Bethesda is seeking section leaders (soprano and tenor) and substitutes (all parts) for our professional quartet that leads our volunteer choir of 25.

Redeemer is an Episcopal Church with music at its heart. As a Parish, we foster our community of professionals, volunteers, and music-appreciators to express our ministry of welcome and elevate our worship through the Anglican choral tradition. The repertoire is appropriately chosen and joyously executed, and whether a hymn or an orchestral mass setting, our music enriches the shared experience of life and the divine. Our composer-led Ensemble-in-Residence, Kassia Music is a first-class group that performs with the choir on special occasions, at our flagship Saturday evening concerts, and co-curates our Friday night series (with open mic). We welcome other local and regional professionals for our Saturday night series, who this year include The Whiffenpoofs, Sam Scheff, and the Eric Byrd Trio.

Our quartet of section leaders works collaboratively with our talented and enthusiastic volunteers. Tuning and ensemble are paramount, but our paradigm is the healthy focus of vowels through healthy onset to energize stylistic performance.
