Children’s Choir of St. Ignatius Loyola seeks Intern

Posted: August 25th, 2015

The Children’s Choir of St. Ignatius Loyola is seeking a music education student to intern. The Church is located on Park Avenue between 83rd and 84th streets. There are 3 choirs in our children’s choir program, and we are looking for a student who can help us during rehearsals for our 2 youngest choirs. These singers range in age from 6 through 11, and they rehearse on Wednesday afternoons (3:15-4:15 and 4:30-5:20). St. Ignatius has a formidable music program which includes 16 concerts in the upcoming season. The children perform on 2 of these with professional orchestra, as well as on Sundays once/month. The intern’s commitment would be solely on Wednesday afternoons.

Assistance is needed with attendance keeping, music distribution, music reading, pencils, bandaids(!), bathroom breaks, and other housekeeping items. Ability to accompany the choir is not a requirement.

If the student is able and willing, warming up the children and/or directing during rehearsal would be possible. Our director has mentored student teachers in the past and would enjoy working with a budding educator once again. The children will enjoy it as well–it is good to see that we are ALL learners. We would prefer to have the same student for the entire season, but understand that due to course schedules, that may not be possible.

A stipend of $1,500.00 to an undergraduate (vocal) music education major, and $2,000 for a graduate student is offered. This is for the entire season. If you believe you may have a student to recommend for the fall, please contact the following:
