June 14 @ 1:00 pm - 1:30 pm

Every Thursday at 1 pm, the St Michael’s Carillon is sounded and the grand organ comes to life for a free 30 minute recital. Now past their ninth year, these recitals are well attended by the public.

This Thursday the performance is by visiting artist Myfanwy McIndoe, it will bring the joy and beauty of live music to many Melbournians and visitors.

Myfanwy McIndoe was born in 1988 in Melbourne. She completed a combined Bachelor of Arts/Bachelor of Music degree (2011) at The University of Melbourne, studying organ with Douglas Lawrence and harpsichord with Elizabeth Anderson. In 2015, she gained her Master in Organ Performance with distinction at the Conservatorium for Music Würzburg, Germany with Prof. Christopher Bossert. Masterclasses with Michel Bouvard, Sophie-Véronique Cauchefer-Choplin, Ludger Lohmann and Kimberly Marshall have enriched her studies, as well as an exchange program to The University of Music and Performing Arts Vienna, where she studied organ (Prof Wolfgang Capek), conducting (Prof Thomas Kiefer) and voice (Prof Birgid Steinberger) in a Bachelor of Church Music. She has performed internationally both as an organist and choir member of the Australian Chamber Choir. Myfanwy held the position of Organ Scholar at Trinity College, and Scots’ Church in Australia, and was Director of Music at the Salesian Convent in Vienna (2017). She is currently Director of Music at St Patrick’s and the Holy Angel and St John Vianney’s Mentone-Parkdale. 

Music has an important role to play in the functioning of society and has had for many thousands of years. No human culture appears to be without music. Singing, in particular, seems to be universal. Music is invariably expressed in relation to religion. The music program at St Michael’s each week brings us some of the best musicians and music that Australia has to offer to enrich our experience during our Sunday services at special events during the year.
