Choral Scholars

The First United Methodist Church of Germantown (FUMCOG) is pleased to announce two choral apprenticeships for the 2009-2010 academic year.  These paid choral scholars will serve in singing with our mixed adult Chancel Choir, occasionally sing with our contemporary music ensemble, Spirit Singers, as well as have opportunities to coach the children and youth.  There will also be opportunities to shine as a soloist.  The scholars should be sophomores, juniors or seniors in high school.  Thus, the position will be one of both teaching and learning, and will serve them with invaluable experience in an urban and diverse ministry.  I invite you to download a brochure (link below) and complete the self-contained application with your children.  You may either send the completed application to the address below or bring the application to their audition:

We are calling an audition day on the afternoon of Sunday, September 27 during the hours of 1:30PM-4:30PM.  Auditions will be held in the church choir room at FUMCOG;  there will be hosts to direct any student to where they can find us.  An audition will last approximately 15 minutes.   If you have any special needs with regard to your audition time, please e-mail the music director at  We will do our best to accommodate your needs.   And furthermore, I will do any needed accompanying, so no audition accompanist is needed.
