The St Mary's Singers
The St Mary's Singers is a choir comprising men and women who love quality liturgical music. It is part of the wider music establishment at St Mary's Cathedral Sydney and sings in the beautiful neo-gothic building usually once a month.
The choir is capably directed and includes people from a wide range of ages particularly membership from younger singers. No audition is required to join the choir but it is expected that prospective members could read music or have some musical ability.
In 2017, St Mary’s Singers offers two annual choral scholarships for tenor voices.
The choir sings at the 5.30pm Vespers and 6pm Mass on the second Saturday of the month and, occasionally the 10.30 am Solemn Mass on Sunday when required. It also performs concerts in the cathedral. Selected recordings are available for the listening pleasure of members and patrons.
Training tracks are available for members to practice.
