Saint John's Chancel Choir
The Saint John's Chancel Choir supports our liturgy with musical leadership for the 10:30 Holy Eucharist every Sunday. The music encompasses everything from eighth century plainsong to sixteenth century motets and modern choral arrangements. We rehearse Wednesdays from 7:00 to 8:30 and Sunday morning before the service. New members are always welcome! If you would like to add your voice to our choir, please contact our Organist and Choirmaster Dr. Geoffrey Ward at 901-323-8597 x 26, or ghward [at] stjohnsmemphis [dot] org
Saint John's Men's Choir
The Chant Choir is a semi-annual opportunity for the men of Saint John’s to participate in the musical liturgy. The choir leads the Feast of the Epiphany on January 6 and the Feast of the Ascension on May 29, 2014 . All men are welcome to participate, no experience necessary.
Saint John's regularly welcomes guest musicians during the 10:30 Sunday service. Professional musicians from the choir, the parish, and the community perform high level chamber music on cello, oboe, violin, tuba, saxophone and others, as well as vocal solos. Many of these recordings can be found on Saint John's YouTube page.
Experience "Amazing Grace" on bagpipes from the Kirkin' o' The Tartan by the Wolf River Pipes and Drums on February 2, 2014 by viewing the video below.
On some Sundays, Dr. Ward plays an interlude on the Steinway, and the result is delightful!
