St Saviour's choir and regular recitals in the Cathedral provide great opportunities for music lovers. We are keen to encourage more choral participation by young people under the direction of our Choir director,Dr. Greg Oehm. Greg has extensive experience in church music as a chorister and choir director. He holds a Masters degree in music from Newcastle University and a docorate in the music of William Turner. Greg works closely with our Organist.
Mr Robert Smith has vast experience in church music. He has been Organist/Choirmaster of St.Bride's Fleet Street, St.Cyprian's Clarence Gate, Halifax Minster, Yorks and St.Thomas' North Sydney. Robert taught Organ and Musicianship at London's Guildhall School of Music for 9 years and has given many recitals in Australia and Britain. Robert and his wife live in Southern Highlands.
St Saviour's 13 bells - named after ships of the First Fleet - make up one of Australia's few full peals, and are renowned throughout the bell-ringing fraternity. New, experienced, or visiting bell-ringers are welcome.
The Dean has called the cathedral "the Gospel Story in glass and stone". Our guides assist visitors in viewing the beauty and historical significance of the cathedral. St Saviour's attracts thousands of visitors from around the world every year. We have a group of guides, under the direction of Mr Fred Rainger. Our guides take great pride in welcoming tourists and others who might be drawn to St Saviour's calm beauty and interesting history. To learn more about being a guide, or organising a group tour, call the Cathedral office (02 4821 2206).
