St. Luke Lutheran Church needs an organist. St. Luke is located at 4200 Epworth Rd. and is an ELCA congregation of approximately 80 active members. The current organist has resigned effective the end of March. We will need someone who ideally could play for a 5:30 p.m. Saturday service as well as for a 10:00 a.m. Sunday service. Ability to play the Lutheran liturgy is desireable but not essential, however must be learned.
If it is not possible for one person to play for both services, we would consider employing one individual for Sat. eve. and another person for Sunday. The individual(s) hired will be playing an Allen organ that is about 15 years old. The salary for this position will be based on the individuals skilll and experience.
If you know of anyone who might be interested in this position, I would appreciate you having them contact me either by:
Jeff Lyons writes..."Who around here plays/knows about theatre organ music? I wish I could find some literature on the style and some music written for the instrument. Other than the Wurlitzer at Vincennes U., is there a theatre organ in or near Evansville? Who would be a good teacher for this?"
Thanks, Jeff Lyons
