Baritone Section Leader

La Jolla Lutheran Church
7111 La Jolla Blvd.
La Jolla, CA 92037

Baritone Section Leader needed to sing in a very small but dedicated and friendly choir. This position is ideal for a student or retiree.

Good sight-reading is desired, but not necessary.  The music repertoire ranges from traditional to contemporary.

Rehearsals are on Tuesday nights from 6:15 to 7:30 PM.  On Sunday, there's a brief warm-up rehearsal from 9 to 9:20 AM.  The service starts at 9:30 and ends at 10:45.  It's basically singing the hymns, the Offering Anthem, and a short Introit song before the service starts.  The songs are fun, with good arrangements, and are not too challenging.

There are additional services such as Ash Wednesday, Holy Thursday (Maundy Thursday), Good Friday, Christmas Eve.  These are short, 1-hour services but are not mandatory.  There is no Christmas Day service unless it falls on a Sunday morning.  There would also be opportunities to sing a solo or duet now and then during the year or to Cantor, leading the congregation with the liturgical music (not required).

Pay is per event: $35 per rehearsal and $35 per Sunday service (averaging about $70 weekly for both events).

If interested, please contact the Director of Music Tracey Marino at or call or text (760) 390-0040. Or, contact the Administrative Assistant Jessica at La Jolla Lutheran Church at 858-454-6459 or email
