Special choirs and ongoing choirs
St. John's has special choirs on holidays such as Christmas and Easter. We also have a Sunday choir that learns the music for Sunday the morning of and sits in the back pews singing with and enhancing the congregation. Anyone is welcome to sing in the choir.
Our Clavinova Model CLP-565GP mini electronic grand piano built in 2016 was acquired from Chester W. Cooke in 2019.
St. John's has wonderful acoustics and we have had many concerts here, including groups such as the DaPonte String Quartet.
One of the magnificent things about St. John's is our love of singing.
