Music is an important part of the worship at St John's. The church has a traditional robed SATB choir, which leads the music at all the main services. This includes the 10am and 6pm Sunday services, as well as mid-week festivals (such as Ash Wednesday, Ascension Day and Maundy Thursday), and weddings on request. The choir has a strong treble line made up of girls and boys aged 7–18 years who follow the RSCM Voice for Life training scheme. There are also adult sopranos, altos, tenors and basses.
We sing a full choral evensong once a term to which we invite guests. Outside of St John's, our choir takes a full part in music festivals held in Ely Cathedral and King's College Chapel.
The choir holds practices on Thursdays at the following times:
6.30–7.30 pm Trebles
7.00–8.00 pm Adults
Please see here for information about the church organ.
On Sunday 5th December our fabulous choir took part in Let's Go Punting and The Traditional Punting Company's Annual Charity Christmas Carol event; Christmas Carols on the River. The event was this year in aid of Blue Smile.
The choir sang everyone's favourite Christmas Carols whilst gliding along the River Cam on a Chauffeured Punt on a very cold afternoon. Well done everyone!
