The choir provides training videos through its YouTube channel and a directory for the benefit of its members and the global choral community. It is part of the wider music establishment at St Mary's Cathedral Sydney and sings in the beautiful neo-gothic building usually once a month.
Membership: The choir is capably directed and includes people from a wide range of ages particularly membership from younger singers. No audition is required to join the choir but it is expected that prospective members could read music or have some musical ability.

Rehearsals are on Monday evenings between 6.30 pm and 8 pm and choristers are required to miss no more than one rehearsal prior to singing at Mass.
Training tracks: Particularly for members of the choir while being made available global, training tracks are prepared for members to practice with. The You Tube channel of the St Mary's Singers is at https://www.youtube.com/user/StMSSyd.
