Sharing the sound

We aim to reach our target of £1 million in order to continue to share the music of the Choir as widely as possible through webcasts, tours, concerts, CD recordings and orchestral collaboration.

Sample projects

Touring fund

An endowed touring fund of £1 million would give the Choir greater flexibility to respond to invitations to perform and tour more extensively and bring the sound of St John’s to new audiences as well as to alumni across the world.

Recording

Over the last 50 years the Choir has collaborated with a number of leading soloists, orchestras, and instrumental players to produce some very highly regarded recordings. Gifts of £5,000 to £15,000 would allow us to engage in new and innovative recording projects.

Please help us to enable the Choir to flourish and grow through the next half-millennium of the College’s history.

Andrew Nethsingha, Director of Music

The Choir processing in to St John’s College Chapel

The Ash Wednesday service in the Chapel of St John's was broadcast live on BBC Radio 3 on 6 March 2019.

The service marks the start of Lent, and featured Byrd's 'Ne irascaris, Domine' as the anthem, with Weelke's Short Service. The Choir also performed Allegri's 'Miserere', without which no service on Ash Wednesday could be complete.

The broadcast is available to listen to online until early April.
