St. Columba's is a community filled with enthusiastic music makers and music lovers. Our music ensembles include volunteer choirs from ages 6 through adult, as well as an orchestra, handbell choirs and a recorder ensemble. In addition to an annual New Year's Eve concert, we hold several musical performances throughout the year. Contact John Hurd, Director of Music (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you would like to get involved!
Here is a sampling of our wonderful performances ...

Made up of 13 former Yale Whiffenpoofs, the world’s oldest collegiate a capella singing group, the Classic Whiffenpoofs include alumni members drawn from the groups of 1962-66. St. Columba’s own parishioner Jon McBride (1964) is a member. They have been performing together since 2011 and have been pleasing audiences all along the East Coast with their classic ensemble sound and rich renditions of traditional Yale songs and original compositions, as well as standards from every decade.
