The successful candidate will direct a number of groups, among these a traditional cathedral choir, a children’s choir and a women’s choir. St. Michael’s Cathedral is a lively, growing faith community that gathers about 200 people each Sunday at three distinctive services. The parish offers a variety of liturgical and musical styles, seeking to nourish the congregation, as well as others from the community who attend services, with a meaningful worship experience.
