SOCIALLY DISTANCED REHEARSAL AT ST MARTIN'S CHURCH
St John Singers has been unable to meet during "lockdowns". We held a few socially distanced rehearsals in October, grateful for the use of the spacious and airy St Martin's Church, and returned immediately after the November lockdown. We will hold a low key version of the "Magic of Christmas" on Wednesday 16th December. Unfortunately this will be for choir members and a very few invited guests only, and there will be no social mingling.
- St John Singers sang the Salisbury Cathedral Services over the weekend 4/5th January 2020
- Another great evening at the "Magic of Christmas" Concert on December 18th. With our partner charity, edUKaid, the evening made over £3500 towards education in Tanzania. Many thanks to all involved.
- A 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.
- 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.
