Jordan Holliday graduated from Concordia University Chicago in May of 2023, where he focused on composition and received a Bachelor of Arts degree in music. While he followed all the church music curriculum, I opted to graduate just as a music major instead of a church work major. Towards the end of his sophomore year, he felt God calling him to study composition – unfortunately, that came at the expense of being a called minister right out of college. While attending CUC, he enjoyed singing in the Mannerchor (Men’s choir) and School Cantorum (chapel choir), and performed with the Wind Symphony in both the French Horn and Percussion sections. Through CUC, he had the opportunity to perform at Symphony Center in a 300 person choir along with the Symphony of Oak Park & River Forest. He enjoys writing music for St. Andrews and leading the choral, handbell, and brass ensembles as they enrich the church’s musical life.
