St. Columba's commitment to musical leadership by parishioners and the well-established culture
of participation by musicians of all ages sets it apart from other music programs in a compelling and enviable way. Music is the vehicle, but the real joy is not only in the singing, but in the relationships and community
that are built through making music together as an
act of worship.
My experience with singers and ringers of all ages has equipped me to continue and build upon this spirit and tradition of musical excellence that St. Columba's has enjoyed for so many years. I look forward to sharing in the music already known and beloved by the singers in the choirs, while at the same time, expanding and broadening their repertoire with pieces I've discovered through my work with other groups. I am excited to begin meeting and guiding the children and youth of the parish as they build musical skills in rehearsals and take on their roles as worship leaders. I welcome the challenges involved in becoming a productive part of the leadership team, and will continue nurturing the gifts of time and talent shared by the parish's talented volunteers as I work to engage and encourage the congregation through the experience of communal music making.
St. Columba's is a truly special place and I am excited and humbled to have been selected to serve as your
next Director of Music Ministries.
