Rededication of the Kingston College 1949 Walker Organ in St. Augustine’s Chapel will take place on January 28, 2024. The program will feature Choral Mattins and a Recital.

Although the Chapel was dedicated on February 6, 1947, at Clovelly Park, the two-manual Organ did not arrive until 1949. The Organ was manufactured by Messrs. J. M. Walker & Sons.

It was fully paid for out of contributions from Old Boys, parents Students and Friends of the School. It was installed in memory of the late Edeline Soutar our first Music Mistress at a cost of over £2,300.

The extensive organ overhaul was sponsored by the prominent KC Old Boy Dennis Lalor and family.
