Redeemer United Church of Christ has an exciting part-time position open for their Director of Music role. Our very talented incumbent is moving out of state for a great fulltime professional opportunity, and we wish her great success in that new role.
The Redeemer community meets in a lovely structure built in 2006, sitting on 10 acres of natural prairie, in what used to be a rural setting until the last two decades of robust residential development. Now, the country property is surrounded by thousands of new homes and developments from five municipalities; Pewaukee, Brookfield, Sussex, Menomonee Falls and Lisbon.
Redeemer’s constituents have a “salt-of-the-earth” legacy, and have grown to become an exciting blend of multigenerational families, comprised of middle and upper-middleclass tradespeople and professionals.
Redeemer has had a very strong musical history from its inception. Hence, the relatively new building was designed to be acoustically alive, for all types of music/instrumental and auditory performance methodologies. The prairie building has a warm residential ambiance, creating a welcoming aesthetic matching the experience you receive from our friendly and welcoming participants.
The mission and vision statement of our community:
Redeemer is a church inclusive of all God’s people, attentive to God’s Word, supportive of one another, and responsive to Christ’s call.
If you are innovative, creative, and love wide expressions of liturgical music, you will enjoy this opportunity! Music flows from the sanctuary on Sundays and Wednesday evenings, to all Redeemer’s classrooms, and outside to the Sanctuary Garden, in the heart of the prairie. Our Pastor, Julie Eklund, is herself, quite expressive and creative and is looking for a gifted performance musician and leader, that will help to build the worship experience, and make it spiritually moving and transformational. And, as an unbelievable bonus, you will be working alongside a world-class accompanist, composer and master-arranger, who has been with Redeemer since his youth. This gifted musician interprets all genres gliding deftly up and down the scales of the Steinway Concert Grand, or teaches the community new songs from his steel-stringed guitar.
