Organist vacancies

Greyfriars Kirk, Edinburgh

We are seeking an Assistant Organist to play our three manual Peter Collins organ at Sunday morning services, to assist in rehearsing our SATB choir, to deputise when the Organist is away and, if available, to play at occasional midweek services and act as Outreach Duty Manager for concerts etc.

The role, similar to an organ scholar in a cathedral setting, should appeal to someone seeking to develop their skills in church music.
