St. Columba's Choir Director-John Tveit

Have you ever wondered where our beautiful music comes from?

John Tveit is our choral director and organist. He originally completed his BA in Music at St. Olaf College, Northfield, MN and MA at University of Illinois, Champaign/Urbana.  From there, he has served at St. Brigid’s in San Francisco, St. Bede’s in Menlo Park, the Cathedral Center of our Los Angeles Diocese, and at St. Cross in Hermosa Beach where he has been choral director and organist since 1998.


We are extremely blessed to have John come up to Big Bear each Tuesday to rehearse with our choir at 5:30pm. He then records all the hymns, service music, prelude, and postlude each Wednesday,that we enjoy on Sunday mornings.


John teaches our choir not only the music, but also how to sing our traditional Anglican hymns with authentic English pronunciation.


Thank you John for your leadership and dedication. We are very grateful!
