Sydney Organ Competition

Welcome to the Sydney Organ Competition 2024

Monday 7 October

The Competition is administered by the Organ Music Society of Sydney.

Steering Committee: Lana Bailey, Sam Giddy, Robert Fox, Kurt Ison


The Sydney Organ Competition has been in existence since 1988.

The aim of our Competition is to foster a high standard of performance amongst young organ students so that they may gain experience in performing publicly and under pressure.  The Sydney Organ Competition encourages them to seek higher levels of excellence by competing. It also gives them an opportunity to meet their peers.

We are delighted to announce that the Open Section, held every second year, is to be held at the historic St James’ Church King Street, on the brand new Dobson organ, commissioned in July 2024. We are most grateful to St James for their support of this prestigious event.

The Intermediate Section will held at St Andrew’s Cathedral, and the Junior section will be held for the first time at St John’s Darlinghurst.

All members of the Society, friends and members of the public, are very welcome to attend all or either of the sections.
