The Worcester Chapter AGO maintains a database of current job openings in the greater Worcester and Central Mass. area.
For religious and music-related institutions, this provides a source of advertising for the openings. For a small fee, the organization's opening(s) will be posted in the chapter newsletter (typically monthly). In addition, for a small fee, the booklet Musicians in Religious Institutions is available to help guide the hiring committee through the recommended process and resources for attaining and retaining quality staff musicians.
For organists and directors, the service is free to guild members for viewing current openings. From time to time, the guild updates its recommended compensation chart which details salary, benefits, and service fees for various degree and experience levels of musicians.
Central Mass.: Contact Joan Venincasa, Placements Chairperson.
