Choir Director and Musical Leader, Part Time - Broomfield UMC, Broomfield , Colorado

June 19, 2017

Sunrise Singers is a small vocal ensemble that supports an 8:00 am traditionally-styled worship service through special music anthems and leadership for congregational singing.  The ensemble is active late-August through early-June, meeting for weekly rehearsals and Sunday services.  The repertoire is varied and ranges from traditional hymn arrangements to spirituals to classic praise choruses.  A key to the ensemble’s success is accessible repertoire selected with amateur, aging voices in mind.  Sunrise Singers joins forces with the congregation’s other vocal ensembles several times a year including Christmas Eve, Easter, and an annual Christmas Cantata.
 
In addition to leading the vocal ensemble, this position is responsible for helping facilitate the overall musical worship content of the 8 am service including scheduling and preparing musicians to provide special music in the choir’s absence as well as working with the Associate Director of Worship Arts in worship planning and design.
