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.
St John Singers will be singing the Salisbury Cathedral Services over the weekend 4/5th January 2020
- 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.
