St Mary's College

Music Groups

Guitar Ensemble

Owen Moriarty, our guitar tutor, directs the Guitar Ensemble.  The group prepares for Chamber Music competitions and other school performance opportunities.  They have become a regular feature at St Mary’s College concerts and events.




Prima is an all-comers choir that rehearses for one lunchtime each week, with a focus on singing for fun and performance.  Students from any year group may join and enjoy the variety of music we practice.






Schola is an auditioned chamber choir that performs a variety of music styles.  It suits students who can read music or those who are passionate enough to learn their part and practice independently.

It rehearses twice a week and aims to work on more challenging repertoire

Chamber Music

Chamber Music is for students who have been learning an instrument for a few years and would like to work in a small instrumental group.


Chamber Orchestra

The orchestra includes students from all year levels and abilities.  They play a range of styles, with a focus on more classical pieces.  Performances include different school events and concerts, including the school production.
