Specific Plans

While maintaining musical excellence at St James' remains a focus, improved funding will ensure this is ongoing and also create opportunities for other initiatives. Among plans to entrench the St James' musical tradition are:

Consistency

Secure a choral ensemble at an optimal number of 10 to 12 voices

Stability

Keep a reliable and dedicated group of musicians who value the contribution of music to worship at St James' and to the wider community through concert programs

 

Succession

Ensure a succession of promising talent to St James' through ongoing recruitment, particularly by fostering relationships between St James' and the University of Sydney Music department, the Conservatorium of Music and schools in NSW and interstate.

Scholarships

Establish choral scholarships and study grants for students through the University or Conservatorium as a way of securing an ongoing flow of talent

Education

By becoming involved in the educational role through scholarships, St James' gives musicians experience and equips them for musical careers and becomes proactive in promoting musical excellence (see the alumni page for some of our success stories to date).

Quality

Strive for even higher standards of music.

Reputation

Build further on the Choir's reputation as it achieves wider recognition by musicians, musical directors, churchgoers and music lovers.
