Cushion Concert 2023

Join the Choristers of St John's College for their first ever Cushion Concert: a family-friendly performance of engaging classical and crossover pop classics from Purcell's Sound the Trumpet to Gary Barlow's Sing, as well as the beautiful folksong, Shenandoah.

Everyone is welcome, and the concert is free. Families and children are welcome to bring a cushion to sit right up at the front to enjoy the performance, which will take place in the serene surroundings of the College Chapel.

At the end of the concert, children will have the opportunity to spend 15 minutes learning a song together with the choristers.
