St. Paul’s Chapel, with its wonderful acoustics, is a landmark treasure of Columbia University. One of the finest architectural spaces on campus, it is an ideal place for diverse musical programs.
Consistent with the Office of the University Chaplain’s mission to help welcome Columbia’s neighbors onto campus the Office of the University Chaplain has established the Music at St. Paul’s program. Music at St. Paul’s will increase the variety of performances of sacred music in St. Paul’s Chapel and provide an on campus venue for stellar musicians from our New York City community to be heard in concert.
Music at St. Paul’s provides an opportunity to hear sacred music and music appropriate to the University Chapel outside of the context of a worship service in a setting for which much of the music was originally composed.
