On Saturday evening, 15 September at 5:00pm, The Choir of St James’ will perform a concert of ‘in memoriam’ music. Music at St James’ presents an annual series of six concerts featuring its famed choir. These concerts are a hidden gem in Sydney’s concert calendar and are not to be missed if you enjoy choral singing of the standard of the Choir of Trinity College, Cambridge, The Tallis Scholars or The Sixteen.
On Sunday 29 July 2018 (Patronal Festival Sunday) a Service to commemorate Australia’s First Peoples and the Eora Nation will be conducted at St James’ Church, King Street, Sydney at 4:00pm. The service will be led by the Rector of St James’, the Rev’d Andrew Sempell, assisted by Bishop Richard Hurford OAM, and Pastor Ray Minniecon, with music provided by The Choir of St James’ under the direction of Warren Trevelyan-Jones.
After a long consultation process, St James’ King Street is commissioning Dobson Pipe Organs Pty Ltd of Lake City Iowa to build a new organ. Elements of the existing organ that are salveagable will be incorporated into the instrument, will cost around $3 million to build and install.
