Music at Christ Church Cathedral

Christ Church Cathedral maintains a music programme that has benefited this city for nearly 200 years – the first record of music at the Cathedral dating back to 1835 when a finger and barrel organ was in use. During that time, the choirs, organists and musicians have enhanced the worship of our church, diocese and city, and provided entertainment on the concert platform in one of Australia’s finest and most historic buildings.

The full and active music programme includes three choirs, Christ Church Camerata, a concert series and Friends of Newcastle Cathedral Music. I invite you to explore these pages where you can learn more about music at the Cathedral, see what music is planned for coming months, listen to our choirs, become a Friend, or join one of our exciting ensembles.
