Price Hill Will

Open Call

Posted:
May 20, 2020
Collaborative Commissions open for the 5th Annual Price Hill Creative Community Festival

The Price Hill Creative Community Festival is commissioning the creation of 4 new performance (or time-based) works to premiere online at the 5th Annual PHCCF.

The collaborative commissions will look a little something like this: We will commission four new collaborative works featuring 2 or more artists*, at least one of which is Cincinnati based. These collaborative groups will spend the month of June developing a project that will premiere online at the end of July. The project must align with our festival’s mission: to build more creative, connected, and equitable communities. Why collaborative and not individual? Collaboration is at the core of PHCCF, and during this time of isolation, we believe artists can model innovative, creative ways to connect and create with one another.

*Price Hill artists may submit proposals that can be featured outdoors and safely enjoyed by the public following no-contact and social distancing guidelines.

These collaborative projects should be performance or time-based work that can be shareable online, and they should be in alignment with the festival’s mission and values. The rest is up to you! Selected projects will be awarded $1,000 for the work’s creation and production. Price Hill Will can provide light support during the development process, but artists should expect to handle all process, technology, materials, and coordination needs on their own.

Timeline
- Proposals due Monday, May 25th at 11:59pm.
- All applicants notified by June 1st.
- Completed projects due July 1st.
- Note: MYCincinnati and Price Hill Will Arts staff will not participate in these
projects. The design, collaboration, production, and submission of your project is
entirely up to you.
- Projects will be premiered the week of July 20th.

How to Submit a Proposal
Visit www.creativecommunityfestival.org/apply and fill out the online application. You will be asked to provide the following information:
- Names of Artists or Name of Collaborative
- Brief Bio of Each Artist
- One Work Sample for Each Artist

Indian Hill Church

Assistant Organist/Organ Scholar

Posted:
Apr 6, 2020
Indian Hill Church
6000 Drake Rd. Cincinnati, OH 45243
indianhillchurch.org
Assistant Organist/Organ Scholar (Two Manual Casavant, 1976)

Overview
Located in the northeast suburbs of Cincinnati, this dual-denominational congregation is 13 miles (drive of 20 minutes) from downtown Cincinnati.  Despite being a medium-sized parish, the music program affords many professional and educational opportunities for the Assistant Organist/Organ Scholar.  The program has a Director of Music, an Assistant Director of Music, and a choral structure that is about half volunteer singers from the parish and half professional section leaders/choral scholars.  All choirs rehearse on Sunday mornings - no midweek rehearsals.  This position offers flexibility (the Director of a Music is an organist), opportunity to work with other professional musicians on staff, experience working with professional singers and volunteer singers of all ages, and a greater understanding of the traditions of two denominations - Indian Hill Church is a rare Episcopal and Presbyterian congregation.  Worship is not blended, but the two Sunday services follow the liturgical traditions of both denominations, on a rotating basis.  Traditional worship/music is the staple of the music program, but the choral program includes a high school/young adult choir that sings non-traditional music, with accompaniment that includes drumming and a jazz combo.  For the seasoned professional, or the professional in training, this position allows an organist to use a wide palette of expression in style and to have great flexibility in job description, workload, and hours of availability.  

Job Description
The current model (which is negotiable, based on the skill set of the Assistant Organist/Organ Scholar) is one in which all of the planning for choral rep and congregational singing is done by the Director of Music and the Assistant Director of Music.  The Assistant Organist/Organ Scholar is only responsible for planning/practicing choral accompaniments, congregational singing, and solo organ rep (Prelude, Postlude, and some selections for Communion and Offertory).  The Assistant Organist/Organ Scholar does not attend parish nor Music Department staff meetings.  Time for collaborative planning/practicing is done on an as-needed basis and is arranged at a time convenient for all parties.  It is conceivable that this could be a Sundays-only job.

Services
The Assistant Organist/Organ Scholar may be involved in non-Sunday morning services (e.g. Christmas Eve, Maundy Thursday, Good Friday), but these are rare and negotiable.  Weekly Sunday morning responsibilities include:
- 8:00 Service (abbreviated music - organ only, no choir, no soloist)
- Two hymns, very minimal service music, and 2-4 brief solo organ pieces
- This service is mostly covered by the Assistant Organist/Organ Scholar alone
- 10:30 Service (full Episcopal and Presbyterian liturgy)
- There is a choir on most Sundays during the academic year
- Hymns, full service music, choral accompaniments, and solo organ pieces
- Responsibilities may be shared with the Director of Music
- Assistant Organist/Organ Scholar will play most of the choral accompaniments

Skill at Other Instruments
Organists with proficiency on other instruments or in singing are strongly encouraged to apply as these additional skills accommodate a more flexible job description.

Compensation
A highly competitive compensation is negotiable and is based on level of proficiency, level of education, experience, and the amount of responsibility taken on by the Assistant Organist/Organ Scholar (given that responsibilities may be shared by the Assistant Organist and other music staff members).  Compensation may be hourly or salary, depending on the level of responsibility.

Cincinnati, OH  45243

The choir sings a challenging sacred repertoire in the context of a worship setting.  However, you need not be a member or the church nor do you need to subscribe to certain doctrines. We are just looking for good singers who have a love for sacred choral music and a respect for the act of Anglican and Reformed worship.  Indian Hill Church is a unique dual-denominational congregation (Episcopalians and Presbyterians worshiping together).  Each denomination’s liturgy is offered every week, alternating the early and later services.  The Choir only sings at the later service.  Anyone seeking a spiritual home is welcome to participate fully in any function of the church, including membership - but it is not required to sing in our choir.  We are a loving and open community of professional singers and good volunteer singers looking for other good singers to join us. 

Indian Hill Church has a multi-tiered choir structure with many singers being in more than one choir.  Choral music is offered at most Sunday services, and all rehearsals are on Sunday morning - no mid-week rehearsals.  Auditions are being held once social-distancing measures are relaxed, and services begin again in mid-August.  

For stipended positions, pay is monthly, based on the number of hours worked in the previous month.  Pay is based on education, experience, and level of skill/proficiency.

Call for Submission: Leftovers

Posted:
Feb 12, 2020
We are 1628 Ltd., a curated co-working space that is also a nontraditional gallery with quarterly art exhibitions located in Downtown Cincinnati. We partner with local artists, private art collectors, and arts organizations for exhibitions. We are currently seeking artists to apply for our coming exhibition, Leftovers, an art exhibition about food!

Everyone must eat, and everyone has their own relationships with food. This can mean cultural tradition, where food plays an integral role. This can be what your mother always served when she had guests over, carefully laying out a tray of sweets and drinks. This can mean what snacks you picked up on your way home from school, or your hangover breakfast with friends, or what takeout you get when you are home alone. 

The aesthetics of Leftovers will embody a playful but vital relationship with food. The work should be colorful and bold, while understanding that food is a key part of individual identity.

If you are interested in seeing the space before applying to the exhibition, please refer to this 1628 blog post. Here you will find a virtual tour of our current exhibition. 

The deadline to submit for the exhibition is Friday, February 28. The final decisions of art to be featured will be decided by Friday, March 14th. 

Please submit at the following link: https://1628ltd.typeform.com/to/Ml7jLH

Good luck, we can’t wait to see your artwork.
