Queen’s Cross Church, Aberdeen
QX is a visionary church in the West End of Aberdeen. The position of Master of Music will be available in early 2019.
We seek to appoint an ambitious and enthusiastic musician with wide experience and a repertoire embracing the traditional/sacred and contemporary/secular. He/she would drive forward our programme to provide a church relevant to the community we serve with an outlook extending well beyond our walls.
Worship on Sunday is a core activity and knowledge of the Church of Scotland tradition is essential. Choir skills would be considered desirable as would previous work with children and young people. We have at our disposal a magnificent and recently refurbished Father Willis organ as well as a first class concert grade piano. Keyboard skills are thus essential but other instrumental skills would be an asset.
The appointment would be for one year in the first instance and the salary would be determined on the basis of past experience and qualifications in line with the range suggested by the Scottish Federation of Organists and the RSCM.
