Saint James Choral Intern Program
The Choral Intern program at Saint James is a collaboration with the Marriotts Ridge High School Choral Program, one of the premier choral programs in the state of Maryland.
 
Select high school choral students are selected by audition each year to serve as section members and leaders in the Chancel Choir, Praise Team, perform solos, and prepare special music for church services. 
 
An intern serves as a contracted staff member of the church for the year, receives a modest stipend, and is allowed the opportunity to share his/her gifts with our congregation while learning the necessary skills as a young music professional.
