The Rocky Hill Congregational Church, UCC, a vibrant and musically talented Open and Affirming
Church, seeks a Director of Music.
As the choir director and organist/pianist, this person serves as a resource to foster and
coordinate the worship and spiritual life of the congregation through choral and instrumental
music. As a member of the professional staff, the Director of Music collaborates with the pastor,
staff and volunteers to plan and coordinate worship services and related activities. The position
has direct responsibility for our adult choir and handbell choir.
Our congregation enjoys traditional music and encourages newer musical forms as a part of
worship. Music is extremely important to us. In these times, our music implementation is
responding to the needs of online (Zoom) worship while looking ahead to the next generation of
church music. The functions of organist/pianist and choir director are changing with the times;
creativity and flexibility will be required as we determine the way forward. Familiarity with
technology will be increasingly important as we evolve. Ability to develop a virtual choir and/or
virtual smaller ensembles would be a strong plus. When in-person worship is again safe, we
look to further develop our strong music program.
The ideal candidate would have a BA with at least two years’ relevant experience, preferably in a
church setting. We are looking for excellent “people” skills, and comfort with the progressive
Salary for this half-time position will be based on the education and experience of the
candidate. The total compensation package would be in a range ($25,000-$35,000) with health
or pension benefits negotiable as a component of compensation.
