Event:
Enjoy a traditional Christmas Choir


Christmas is fast approaching and soon the festive celebrations will begin. On Friday 13 December, St Mary's Cathedral will come alive with the angelic voices of the St Mary's Cathedral Choir. This year is the Choir's 201st anniversary. St Mary's Cathedral Choir is formed by 24 boy choristers alongside 12 professional adult singers and is Australia's oldest musical ensemble with origins tracing back to 1818.

The St Mary's Cathedral Choir has recently given several concert performances to critical acclaim including a widely-praised performance of Monteverdi's Vespers in collaboration with The Song Company and the Orchestra of the Antipodes. In 2018, the Choir performed in the International Gregorian Chant Festival in Watou, Belgium, and also performed for His Holiness, Pope Francis in Rome.

Joining the Choir will be the Sinfonia Australia Orchestra. They are renowned for a number of recorded CD's made with solo voice and solo instrumentalists, including winning awards with the complete set of Beethoven piano concertos with pianist Gerard Willems. Other projects include a co-presentation between ABC TV, ABC Classics and Opera Australia and also recorded soundtracks for several feature films including The Bank and The Boys.
