Music

St. John's has a long, proud history of providing Victoria with great music in worship and in concert. Boasting fine acoustics, a magnificent pipe organ, a long-standing choral history, and a tradition of intentional music in liturgy, we hope to help carry the Anglican Choral Tradition forward into the future here in Victoria. 

Come sing at St John's! We are accepting singers of all voice types in both the Choristers and the Community Choir (see pages below for more details on the choirs - there's a choir for you whether you are an experienced singer with the sight-reading skills to cover lots of repertoire in a short time, or just love to sing and want to grow that ability and contribute to the liturgy on a monthly basis).
Contact the Director of Music ([email protected]) to arrange an interview/audition.
