Mitchell Crawford

A native of southwest Virginia, Mitchell Crawford received his earliest musical instruction as a member of the Montgomery County Boychoir. Formative study with pianist Mary Louise Hallauer of Virginia Tech and organist Richard Cummins of Greene Memorial Church, Roanoke, cemented his desire to pursue a career in music. His undergraduate studies were with Paul Jacobs at The Juilliard School in New York City, where he was admitted with Presidential Distinction and obtained the Bachelor of Music degree in Organ Performance.

Peter Coulombe

Peter Coulombe directs the Old South Ringers, our handbell choir, which plays about once a month from September to June. Some of the ringers have been playing since childhood, others just picked up a bell for the first time this year. Peter loves how the Ringers embody the open door spirit of Old South in its own unique way – everyone has a place at the Ringers’ table.
