St. Columba's Episcopal Church

Organ Scholar Program




















New in 2015, the music department created an organ scholar program. The purpose of the program is to encourage pianists to explore organ study. This is in response to a nation-wide shortage of organ students (in 2014 there were only 187 undergraduate organ majors in the entire USA).

St. Columba’s is blessed with a wonderful organ, two energetic staff organists, parishioners who play and study organ, many organ enthusiasts and a wonderfully supportive and music-loving congregation, so an organ scholar program was a natural outgrowth of this rich musical environment.

Past St. Columba Organ Scholars include:
2015 - Anders Brodnax
2016 - Sophie Ewing
2017 - Norbert Fiess
