Recently Jubilee Orchestra recruited a new staff member for the role of music librarian. His name is Zachary Hicks, a recent graduate from New York University with a music degree in flute performance. A music librarian's responsibilities are essential. He will compile all the orchestral scores, scan each part individually, and send them out to musicians. Most importantly, he needs to check if each instrument's part matches the conductor's master score. It is a position that requires specialized music-reading skills and experiences in the orchestra.
Zach will also assist with arrangement of Jubilee Orchestra rehearsals. He will work closely with the conductor, concertmaster, and manager. Zach works diligently and is looking forward to the Christmas Concert.
Thank God for providing Jubilee Orchestra a candidate for this special position. Zach's addition to the staff will add much strength to Jubilee Orchestra. May God continue to send workers for the imminent harvest in the Kingdom of God.
