Music

Music plays a vital role in the life and worship of St. George’s Anglican Church, Johannesburg. With the installation of a new Rieger organ in 2012, the music of the church has been greatly uplifted. The church now has an extensive programme of choral music (through its own church choir, and visiting performers) as well as many organ and other instrumental recitals. The primary focus of the music at St.George’s is, of course, the worship of God as part of the living tradition of the Anglican Church.

In the documents below, you will find all the information concerning the music of St. George’s Anglican Church, and we welcome you to join us in our regular acts of worship, as well as the many non-liturgical musical events the church hosts.

RIEGER ON THE REEF ORGAN
A magnificent custom-made Reiger organ was installed in 2012 after many years of planning. The donors, Nicky and Strilli Oppenheimer generously made this instrument available, not only to enrich and enhance our worship, but to function as a performance instrument for international and local recitalists. We have since been privileged to host a number of the world’s top organists at full-house performances and we are also gla to host monthly recitals before evensong of our best local organists.
