About the Society

St John’s College has a vibrant and diverse music society. It runs a successful professional recital series which has recently included, the famed Jazz pianist Gwilym Simcock, a female folk trio called Lady Maisery and a group playing Brahms with a gypsy twist. The society organises regular open mic sessions, a lunchtime recital series, and many other social events.

St Johns College Chapel Choir

The college choir is joined by audition only. Services are on Wednesdays and Sundays, and members are both well paid and enjoy a rich social life. Find out more about the choir on their Choir Page.

‘Bad Choir’

This is the college’s fun non-auditioning choir! If you want to sing and you want to do shoo-wap-i-doo-ing dance moves, but you can’t, then join bad choir. They aim to bring the music to the people with no co-ordination, no pitch, no experience, no fear and no worries.
