The new pipe organ at St James’

St James’ is undertaking a Bicentennial Organ Replacement and Restoration Project that is both ambitious and visionary. Ambitious, because the project will cost up to $4 million to be successfully completed. Visionary, because the new organ will provide an exciting new instrument for the Sydney community. The new St James’ organ will rang as the third largest in Sydney after those in the Sydney Opera House and the Sydney Town Hall.
