The St Mark’s Choir
There has been a robed Liturgical choir at St Mark’s for over 120 years! The current choir was re-organised in 1993 when Dr William Clark OAM was appointed Director of Music for the 8am Choral Communion Service and organist for weddings and funerals.
The St Mark’s Choir sings a choral repertoire covering five centuries of church music and more recent contemporary anthems and settings. The Choir leads a wide variety of hymns which the 8am congregation sings with enthusiasm and commitment.
The 8am service is accompanied by our excellent Létourneau organ built in 2004 and donated by the late Lady (Nancy) Fairfax as a memorial to her late husband, Sir Vincent Fairfax. A new grand piano is also used at some of our services. The piano was anonymously donated by two generous parishioners. We add a brass ensemble for important services such as Easter and Christmas.
In addition to Choral services, the Choir or sections of it sing at funerals and weddings as requested. The Choir presents an annual Concert and also an annual Festival of Lessons and Carols service for families and parishioners.
In 2016 an Organ Scholarship Fund was established by three generous benefactors. An annual recital is held each year. To donate to the fund, please click here. To learn more about our current Organ Scholarship Recipient, Nico Tjoelker, please click here.
