Minister of Music and Arts Vision and Search Team Process
Westminster Presbyterian Church in Albany, NY is a diverse congregation known for the high quality of its music in worship. We are looking for a Minister of Music and Arts with the skills (as an organist and/or choir director), vision, and spirit of leadership needed to guide and develop our musical programs.
We plan to begin reviewing applications at the beginning of December. You may reach us at firstname.lastname@example.org
We appreciate your continued prayers as we discern who God is calling to be our new Minister of Music and Arts.

The Ministry of Music and Arts
**Please note: During January and February 2022, the choir has suspended their Thursday evening rehearsals and is meeting at 8:45 am in the sanctuary on Sundays to rehearse.**
The Westminster Choir wants you! We rehearse every Thursday evening (with few exceptions) from September till June, and sing every Sunday morning (with few exceptions). In addition to our regular Sunday duties, the choir also sings at special worship services (Christmas Eve, Ash Wednesday, Holy Week, FOCUS services) and we periodically present larger-scale choral works, often accompanied by small orchestra or other ensemble. We have singers of all levels. Join us in making a joyful noise to the Lord! Contact the church office for more information.
We're an intergenerational group of ringers who meet weekly several times a year for 4-5 weeks at a time to prepare musical offerings for worship services. We play on two sets of Malmark handbells (5-octave and 3-octave), as well as a 3-octave set of Suzuki ToneChimes. (New ringers are always welcome: an ability to read music is helpful but not essential.) Contact the church office for more information.
