Cardinal Newman Organ Academy


Our St. Joseph church staff musicians, David Cochrane and Brad Cunningham, are on the cutting edge of recruiting and training faith-filled high school organ students to play organ.

The Cardinal Newman High School Organ Academy was created in Summer 2018 and organ lessons began at the beginning of the 2018-19 school year. As of the 2020-21,  school year, since Summer 2018, seven students have been accepted into the academy.

One of the highlights of the year are the organ “crawls” where students have hands-on experience exploring some of Columbia’s fine pipe organs.
