We have had an interesting and varied 2018 Season ending with the choir participating in a major British Legion Charity Concert, "The Angel and the Fallen", with her Majesty's Band of the Scots Guards and compered by Alastair Stewart, in the Cathedral.

  • Our  November Remembrance Concert at the Museum of Army Flying was both moving and enjoyable, a lovely mix of emotive choral music and readings, with the audience joining in the singing of hymns and 1WW songs. 
  • The Magic of Christmas, our major annual concert, was in support of the John McNeill Opportunity Centre. With their help, and the generosity of a 300 strong audience, we had a wonderful evening of music, wine and mince pies. The concert made £3,600 for the JMOC.
  • Our recent 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.

 

We were all devastated by the recent death of our brilliant accompanist, David Coram and our 6th July Concert, the Mozart Requiem will be in his memory.

 
 
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.
