The Cathedral Church of All Saints (Anglican), Halifax, Nova Scotia is seeking an Organist and Director of Music.
Under the direction of the Dean and Rector of the Cathedral, the Organist/Music Director will provide music at the principal Sunday service, at monthly Choral Evensong, and at special Cathedral and Diocesan services throughout the year. She/he will provide leadership to, and encourage the growth of the Cathedral choir (approximately 20 voices with paid leads), oversee rehearsals, maintain the music library and in consultation with the Music Committee seek ways to enhance the overall profile of the music program.

A Yamaha grand piano and a Yamaha electronic piano are also maintained by the Cathedral.
We are seeking a person with a minimum RCCO level 4, or equivalent, and an expectation of 25-30 hours per week. Additional information regarding the current music program and Cathedral congregation can be viewed at the cathedral website: www.cathedralchurchofallsaints.com
