Join Our Team

Brown Memorial Park Avenue Presbyterian Church (USA) – a thriving, progressive community of faith in the heart of Baltimore City – is seeking its next Minister of Music to lead the congregation’s musical and spiritual worship and life.


Brown Memorial has a rich history of musical excellence and leadership, including the musicians Virgil Fox, Eugene Belt, John Walker, and until his death in 2022, Michael Britt. Its organ – built and installed in 1931 and historically restored in the early 2000s  – is internationally renowned as one of the best surviving examples of the Skinner Organ Company’s and G. Donald Harrison’s work. Other musical ‘assets’ include a strong 36+-member volunteer Chancel Choir assisted by eight paid soloists, two “Soulful” volunteer contemporary ensembles, two grand pianos, and one set of handbells and one set of choir chimes. Brown Memorial also presents 2-4 concerts/events each year as part of its Tiffany Series, named for the outstanding collection of Tiffany windows in the sanctuary.  (You can learn more about all of these things on the church’s website.)


The congregation is seeking its next Minister of Music to honor and build upon this strong musical tradition, while also developing a vision of a vibrant music ministry for the future.
