Seeking musicians for church services

Hello, all:

I'm the pastor of a French-speaking church in Lausanne, and I'm seeking musicians to play 1-2 times a month for our Sunday morning service. Musicians would accompany approx. 6-8 congregational hymns and select pieces from their own repertoire for the prelude, interlude, postlude, and on certain Sundays communion. Pianists and organists are particularly sought, but any musician capable of accompanying congregational song is warmly welcomed.

The community at this moment is small and intimate. They are "traditional" in style and very much appreciate classical music. There are a number of talented musicians and ensembles who use the space for rehearsals and who participate occasionally on Sunday morning, and there's beginning to be a really nice collaborative atmosphere in the building (concerts, joint services with other communities, special musical services, etc.).

I would like to be able to offer financial compensation, but it is not possible at this time. What we can offer is this: 1) the use of a grand piano and/or organ for practice purposes, 2) the opportunity to network with other friendly musicians (myself included), and 3) the welcome and encouragement of a church community that finds spiritual nourishment in the arts. If this interests you, then I look forward to speaking with you soon.

All good wishes!
