In this section you can find out more about how to become a member of the Choir of St John's College.

The Choir comprises Choristers (boys aged eight to 13) and Choral Scholars (young men who are also undergraduate students at the College).

There are also two Organ Scholars, also students at the College, who play for services and rehearsals and help the Director of Music rehearse the Choir.

St John’s Voices

St John's College is also home to our sister choir, St John's Voices. Founded in 2013, 'SJV' is the College's mixed-voice choir that is open to all students at St John's, as well as volunteers from the wider City and University community. The choir is directed by Graham Walker, a former chorister and choral scholar of the College Choir.

This webcast is the first service of the 2020/21 academic year, and the first Choral Evensong to be sung since 13th March. It therefore marks the end of an extraordinary period of silence in the Chapel's history, and the start of a very exciting, if challenging, new term.
