St John Singers has returned to normal rehearsals and concerts, starting on September 6th in St Martin’s Church. Throughout the pandemic we have met whenever possible and held online rehearsals with Steve Abbott and “live” piano accompaniment from Ben Maton. On 16th December 2020 we held our annual “Magic of Christmas” concert with a very small audience of friends and family and on 27th June we were delighted to meet again in a generously lent marquee at the South Canonry for a sing and Summer Party. It was also an opportunity to toast the 90th birthday of our founder, John Powell.
The Autumn looks refreshingly busy, joining Royal British Legion Central Band for their Centenary Concert in the Cathedral on 16th October,
singing the Monteverdi Vespers with several other choirs in the Cathedral on 22nd November,
and holding our traditional Magic of Christmas celebration on Wednesday 15th December in St Thomas’s Church.
As usual we will be singing the Cathedral Services for the first weekend of the New Year.
