Sydney Organ Competition

A graduate of Sydney Conservatorium where she studied organ with Norman Johnston,  Heather has been organist and director of music at Scots Kirk Presbyterian in Mosman for the past twelve years. She is also pianist with the Mirrabooka Singers, giving concerts in retirement villages and nursing homes.

Every Christmas and Easter Heather is busy playing for several performances of Handel’s Messiah, both in Sydney and beyond - including several occasions with the Hastings Choristers.  During the past year she has given solo recitals at St Stephen's Macquarie Street, St Andrew's and St Mary's cathedrals, and just recently at Hornsby Uniting Church. On Palm Sunday in Goulburn she was organist in a performance of music from Bach's great St  Matthew Passion.

Last August Heather accompanied an English choir, the Cranmer Company of Singers, when they performed in Finland.

In addition to a private teaching studio in Sydney’s Hills district, Heather teaches piano at Georges River Grammar School and is an examiner with the Australian and New Zealand Cultural Arts.
