We look forward to our annual "Magic of Christmas" Concert on December 18th and we are participating in the Christmas Tree Festival at St Thomas's Church at 12.15pm 0n 7th December.

  • Our March Folk Song and Choral Classics evening was very much enjoyed by the audience, not least because of the abundant home made cakes. Almost £895 was raised for the Salvation Army and the wonderful work that they do.
  • Stainer's Crucifixion on Good Friday at Whiteparish was a very moving service with superb singing from our own Rob Blakey and Morley Beswick, sensitively accompanied by Chris Fay on the organ. £650 was collected for the Church.
  • On Saturday June 1st we sang Evensong at Chichester Cathedral and had a fantastic welcome with our old friends, Dean Stephen and Lizzie Waine. The weather was glorious in the beautiful deanery garden and we sang in a wonderful acoustic. It was lovely to see our President, Dr Richard Seal, there to support us.
  • On July 6th 2019 our Summer Concert in memory of David Coram attracted a huge audience and raised almost £1500 for Encircles, a charity for the homeless. Hugh Hetherington delivered the Vaughan Williams Mystic Songs with great feeling, and the Mozart Requiem for David was spell-binding, both choir and soloists giving their all, and an amazing organ accompaniment from Sam Hanson.

  • Our most recent concert was held on October 12th at Amesbury Abbey Church, with a popular mix of Psalms, Songs and Secular Music, and Billy Maton giving an amazing performance of Gershwin's Rhapsody in Blue. The concert made a much needed £700 for the church roof.

 
St John Singers was founded 45 years ago by John Powell MBE our Emeritus Director of Music. We are a mixed choir of some fifty voices with members coming from Salisbury and the surrounding area. The choir enjoys a varied repertoire covering sacred and secular music from the Tudor period to the present day. We rehearse weekly on Mondays during 'term time' and perform concerts and other events some four or five times a year in Salisbury and further afield, including visits aboard.  Our concerts have supported nearly two hundred different charities over the years, raising significant funds for them. Our Musical Director is Stephen Abbott, and our accompanist is Ben Maton
 
If you like good singing in a sociable environment and are interested in joining the choir,  please email the choir Chair, Simon Cox via the Contact Page 
The choir has no vacancies at present but we do keep a list of potential members for the future.
