In December 2019, St. Mary’s Music Foundation and Harmonia Australis announced a new partnership starting in March 2020.

Harmonia Australis is a not-for-profit, Perth-based orchestra and chorale which was formed with the aim of providing a professional platform for leading vocalists and musicians to bring quality music performances to WA audiences.

St. Mary’s Music Foundation is a charitable foundation which exists to establish and develop a centre for musical excellence to enhance the cultural and artistic life of the South Perth and wider community.

The arrangement with Harmonia Australis means that audiences will now be able to experience high quality orchestral and chamber ensemble concerts at St. Mary's, and this will add considerably more variety to the programme of concerts that we will be hosting in 2020.’

Harmonia Australis have announced eight concerts to be given at St. Mary’s , which will also be repeated at various venues in regional WA.
