Welcome to

 


Music 
 
The choir of  St. John's has a dedicated group of singers and soloists who practice in the santuary each Sunday at 9:45 a.m before worship, from September to June.  Our organist and choir director Grace Han and the choir ethusiastically lead the praise of the people during the worship service.  Choral repertoire encompasses ancient, classical and contemporary music. 
The santuary has a three-manual Keates pipe organ and an Heintzman grand piano.

The children of our Church School enhance the joy of music at St. John's throughout the year when they sing in church for special occasions including the Christmas Pagent, Earth Sunday, Easter, and Family Sunday.
 
There are opportunities to make music at St. John's if you sing or play a musical instrument. Your participation would be cordially welcomed.
