Choir Program Overview
Saint Columbkille offers a variety of opportunities to learn, practice and perform in a group ensemble setting, including Junior Choir and Select Choir.
Junior Choir gives grade 2 and 3 singers an opportunity to participate in Mass music parts as well as music performances outside of the school. Junior Choir performs in the Christmas Nativity, BC Sing It To The Heights, and the End of the Year Show. It also prepares second and third grade singers who are interested in joining Choir in fourth grade and beyond. It’s a wonderful club where students get to sing their souls out!
Saint Columbkille’s select choir, also known as “The Mighty Doves”, is an auditioned group of singers who desire to go above and beyond the required music curriculum. They were established in the fall of 2016 under the direction of Ms. Samantha Jordan. These singers work tirelessly on various ear training and music theory exercises to stretch their musical ability, and work diligently on completing their curricular studies to maintain a satisfactory grade point average. The Mighty Doves have been seen caroling at the Watertown mall, and appeared as guests at the 2016 ‘Light the World’ campaign. They also captured the audience at Boston College’s ‘Sing it to the Heights’, and were even asked to be the guest choir during the Boston College theater department’s production of the Broadway musical ‘Evita’!
