"The Transitional Cathedral in Christchurch is the temporary home of Cathedral worship following the significant damage done to the old Cathedral in the 2011 earthquakes that shook the city. A modern streamlined building designed by Japanese Architect, it is the only Pritzger Prize winning building in NZ. It houses a large Rodgers Infinity series 484 Digital organ, one of the first of these models to be installed in the world.
A decision on the future of the old Cathedral (and its 3 manual, 76 stop, Hill Norman & Beard organ) is expected to be announced at Christmas this year. The Assistant Organist may have some input into the future organ of the new Cathedral. The Assistant Organist is deputy to the Cathedral’s Director of Music, John Linker, and is generally expected to play for all regular Cathedral services during school terms when the Cathedral Choir is on duty.
We are open to all options at the moment and would consider expressions of interest both those from those seeking long-term employment and those looking at a shorter (one year minimum) position. This may be attractive to those seeking a ‘Gap” year in New Zealand from overseas. An attractive package is on offer.
