Music is an integral part of our worship and the Cathedral takes great pride in the music performed at its services.
The Cathedral Choir continues to preserve the great English choral tradition in the regular singing of Choral Evensong and in our Sunday Choral Eucharist.
The Cathedral Choir’s repertoire is wide ranging, from ancient plainsong to newly composed offerings.
The Cathedral’s two organs, both originally from the United Kingdom, are especially fine, and as treasures of the region are amongst the finest instruments of their kind in Australia. Organ recitals are a regular feature in the Cathedral diary, in addition to an active concert and recital schedule featuring orchestral, chamber and solo artists.
The Cathedral maintains close links with its school, Cathedral College. The school celebrates its regular chapel services in the Cathedral, and a number of its students sing in the Cathedral Choir.
An annual Wangaratta community highlight is the Jazz Mass, a joyous celebration of the internationally renowned Wangaratta Jazz Festival. On this occasion, the Cathedral Choir joins forces with a combined stage band of local and interstate school ensembles to provide a thrilling accompaniment for the Festival Jazz Mass artists to a packed out cathedral.
The Cathedral Choir comes under the direction of Mr Hugh Fullarton who is Master of the Choristers and the Cathedral Organist.
The Director of Music is always pleased to hear from potential singers. If you have a keen musical ear, a clear voice, fluent sight-reading skills, and thrive on working in a stimulating musical environment, please contact Hugh Fullarton on email@example.com to arrange an audition.
