Substitute Roster

Our members who are available to play for church on an ad hoc basis are highly skilled professionals with extensive experience as organists (and/or pianists) in worship environments.  Many have choral conducting skills, and would be happy to serve as organist/choir directors if desired.

It is left to the negotiating parties to determine an honorarium, taking into account compensation for performance time, practice time, and mileage; the performer’s familiarity with a given liturgical tradition; and the reasonable availability of the church or synagogue facilities for organ practice time.
