Andrew Cichy is the Organist and Director of the Schola Cantorum of St. John’s Pro Cathedral, Perth. He commenced pipe organ studies with Annette Goerke at the age of 15, at Trinity College, East Perth, where he was awarded the Lynn Kirkham Pipe Organ Scholarship. Currently, he is completing the honours year of his Bachelor of Music at the University of Western Australia. In addition to his duties at the Pro Cathedral, Andrew has played for other functions around Perth, including at St. Mary’s Cathedral and Perth Concert Hall, and has worked at New Norcia as the live-in substitute organist when the Abbey Organist has been away. He has acted as a consultant to a number of Perth parishes which have been considering installing pipe organs.
Andrew has particular interests in Gregorian Chant and Renaissance Polyphony. He has designed several courses for those interested in learning Gregorian Chant, and prepared performing editions of Renaissance choral music by Spanish composers for UWA’s Winthrop Singers, which were recently used for a public concert and CD recording at New Norcia. He is also a founding member of ‘Quartessence’, a male vocal ensemble which brings the music of less-well-known Renaissance composers to West Australian audiences.Book This Performer
