We’re recruiting for a Pianist! Find out more below…
Repertoire: The accompanist will be expected to accompany three or four congregational songs from the Singing the Journey book (pop, tonal) and sometimes from the pop music genre (intermediate sight reading levels). We also have various visiting musicians who may or may not need accompanying. These musicians perform three pieces of music spread through the Gathering (i.e. opening, collection for a charity, and closing) ranging from about 2-5 minutes in length, solo or with piano accompaniment. If they need accompaniment, they will provide sheet music for the pianist. Sight reading level for these pieces must be strong. All pieces are between 2-5mins in length so the total expected playing duration for the accompanist could be anywhere between 10-30 minutes of music.
Timings: Performing musicians and accompanist arrive from 10.15/10.30am to run through pieces.
Gathering starts at 11.15am and finishes around 12.15pm. Tea/coffee and snacks are served afterwards!
Fee: £45 per Gathering. This will be a contractor position and you will be asked to submit an invoice.
Location (for 2019): Newington Green Primary School, Matthias Road, N16 8NP London. In 2020 we return to the Newington Green Meeting House further up the street.
