FOUNDATION FOR THE ARTS
St George's Concert Series would not be possible without the generous support of donors and our underwriters, Julian and Alexandra Burt.
Even the Messiah concerts, with their large audiences, cannot be financed through ticket sales alone. The Concert Series is expected to pay all expenses for dress rehearsals and concert performances by the orchestra, soloists, choir, conductor, and organists as well as the cost of brochure mailings, programmes, publicity and staging. Your support is therefore vital to continuing our tradition of excellence in presenting great programmes of instrumental and choral works performed by the St George’s Cathedral Consort, the Orchestra of St George and distinguished guest musicians.
Please join us and give as generously as you can. Contributions may be given by cheque, cash, or credit card payable to the St George’s Cathedral Foundation for the Arts. Donations may be made in memory of family and friends.
The St George’s Cathedral Foundation for the Arts Inc. is a tax deductible fund listed on the Register of Cultural Organisations under subsection 78(4) of the Income Tax Assessment Act 1936.
PRAISE FOR ST GEORGE'S CONCERT SERIES
"World-Class”, “Perfection”, “Spectacular”, “Breathtaking”, “Glorious”, “Uncompromising musicianship of the highest order."
“The Cathedral Consort sang with an almost otherworldly precision and explosive power. . . . Joseph Nolan has a supreme talent for recognizing where in a piece of music the genius resides, and how to communicate that to an audience in the most direct and uncompromising fashion. More of a musician you cannot ask.”
“One of the most dynamic and musically engaging ‘Messiah’s that I've had the pleasure of hearing. Joseph Nolan has transformed the St George’s Cathedral Consort into an outstanding ensemble, with excellent technical control. Their clear articulation in all the fast passages and a beautifully blended sound brought considerable intensity and dramatic impact to the work’s more powerful moments. A genuinely moving and uplifting performance.”
