National Launch of the Ralph Morton Memorial Fund in Brisbane

RSCM Queensland is proud to be hosting a weekend of fine sacred music featuring some of Australia’s finest choirs.  The choir of St Andrew’s Cathedral, Sydney and St Francis, Melbourne unite with the cathedral choirs of St John’s and St Stephen’s, Brisbane to present an afternoon of music from Handel to the present day. 

The concert takes place at 3pm on Sunday, 30 September 2018 at the Cathedral of St Stephen (249 Elizabeth Street, Brisbane), with parking available in the Cathedral Carpark accessed via Charlotte Street.  Tickets are just $20, available via trybooking (https://www.trybooking.com/book/event?eid=405738&) or at the door, with proceeds going to the Ralph Morton Memorial Fund.   

The concert is to celebrate the launch of RSCM’s Ralph Morton Memorial Fund, which has been established to help encourage young church musicians to further pursue training and experiences in church music.  Ralph was the long-term President of both RSCM Queensland and RSCM Australia, and the fund seeks to continue Ralph’s wonderful work into the future. 

As part of the weekend, both St Andrew’s and St Francis will perform their own concerts: 

  • St Francis at 2pm on Saturday, 29 September at the Cathedral of St Stephen; and 
  • St Andrew’s at 4pm on Saturday, 29 September at St John’s Cathedral (373 Ann Street, Brisbane).
