The Brisbane Contemporary Church Music Festival

The Fieri Consort
The Brisbane Contemporary Church Music Festival is an annual showcase of contemporary church music that gives audiences an exciting opportunity to hear fine performances within the acoustic of St John’s Anglican Cathedral.

In 2014, the Brisbane Contemporary Church Music Festival takes place over two jam-packed Sundays in August.

But what does ‘contemporary church music’ mean?  The phrase can be confusing.

Is it so-called “popular” music?  No.  Are there drum-kits and guitars?  No.

Does it involve the sort of music many churches sing on a Sunday morning?  Unlikely.

The Festival aims to present recent sacred music that remains largely hidden to modern audiences – because of the high standard of performance it requires – and give listeners a way to experience faith and spirituality, set in language appropriate to the age in which we live.

In 2014, the Festival is delighted to welcome the Fieri Consort as special guests.
