Praise for the St George’s Cathedral Concert Series:

“World-Class”, “Perfection”, “Glorious”, “Uncompromising musicianship of the highest order.” – The West Australian.

“The Cathedral Consort sang with an almost otherworldly precision and explosive power. . . . Joseph Nolan has a supreme talent for recognizing where in a piece of music the genius resides, and how to communicate that to an audience in the most direct and uncompromising fashion. More of a musician you cannot ask.” – The West Australian.

“One of the most dynamic and musically engaging ‘Messiah’s that I've had the pleasure of hearing. Joseph Nolan has transformed the St George’s Cathedral Consort into an outstanding ensemble, with excellent technical control. Their clear articulation in all the fast passages and a beautifully blended sound brought considerable intensity and dramatic impact to the work’s more powerful moments. A genuinely moving and uplifting performance.” – The Australian.

“Exceptional” – Arts Update, Australian Book Review.
