Northrop Organist

Northrop is hiring a Northrop Organist.

Position Overview

Northrop seeks a visionary and creative organist to serve in a newly created, part-time Northrop Organist position which will serve as curator for Northrop’s extraordinary Aeolian-Skinner organ Op. 892. Northrop and the UMN School of Music believe the instrument can be the foundation of a thriving organ program and a vibrant studio, within the rich organ community present in the Twin Cities. This position will provide assistance to the various users (especially new users) of the organ from the UMN campus community as well as our Twin Cities organ and music community and guest artists. The Northrop Organist will have the option to give one performance during each academic year as part of Northrop’s Music Series and will provide consultation about other performances as part of the position’s service to the Northrop Organ Advisory Board. The position provides leadership and advice on maintenance to ensure the preservation and optimal use of the instrument(s). The Northrop Organist will be an important liaison between Northrop and the School of Music, and will build bridges between Northrop, students, faculty, guest artists, and community. The position is well suited to pair with a teaching role, a performing career, and/or a church position. 

Applications submitted by Jan 2, 2024 will be given priority consideration.


The Northrop Organist will have at least 4 years’ education or experience in pipe organ construction, design, and/or care and maintenance, either through formal training (such as coursework related to organ or apprenticeship with an organ builder), or experience in caring for pipe organs. A background in working with the early 20th century technologies of our instrument, as well as familiarity with the 21st century technologies with which the Northrop organ is now equipped, is preferred. The position requires strong organization, communication, and problem solving skills, as well as strong interpersonal skills to work with a wide variety of personalities. Must be flexible with the ability to work days, evenings, and weekends as needed.
