The St Peter’s Cathedral Music Foundation is committed to strengthening the music programme offered at the Cathedral, in the Anglican Diocese of Adelaide and in the wider community.

We enable musicians to experience quality education, striving for excellence as they use their musical talents in worship services and concerts.

Since the establishment of the Foundation, it has assisted hundreds of choristers and musicians, providing scholarships, musical tuition, new music and encouragement to pursue careers in music.

Give future generations a gift...the Cathedral Organ

The Cathedral Organ is being restored in England by world renowned organ builders, Harrison & Harrison Ltd. The budget is $2.1 million. $900,000 has been raised so far. With your donation the Cathedral Organ will be home by Christmas 2018. Find out more
