A Harmony of Legacy and Craftsmanship Unveiled in Bathurst’s 150th Pipe Organ Celebration

On March 10, 2024, Bathurst Uniting Church will resonate with the enchanting melodies of its historic pipe organ, celebrating 150 years of musical legacy. At both the commemorative church service in the morning and the ALL STOPS OUT concert in the afternoon, the organ will be played by Internationally acclaimed organist Christopher Wrench.   The afternoon concert will include an organ recital and The Allegri Singers.  The celebration promises to weave a narrative of history, passion, and extraordinary musical prowess.

These milestone events highlight the church’s treasured pipe organ, a masterpiece crafted in 1874 by William Davidson. One of only two remaining in its original form in New South Wales, meticulous restoration efforts have preserved this rare gem as a testament to colonial craftsmanship.

The Church service commemorates the organ as an instrument that inspires people in their worship of God.  The service will acknowledge the music-making of organist Judy Brooke, whose 62-year journey with the organ mirrors the church’s rich history. 

The concert is not just a musical event; it’s a living tapestry connecting the past, present, and future through the language of music. Join us for a day of soul-stirring melodies, and a celebration of 150 years of musical legacy.
