All students at St. John’s have the opportunity to participate in the choral program. The foremost goal is to help the students develop one of their most precious gifts – the singing voice, and to praise God and proclaim His great love through song. All choirs will participate in worship services at St. John’s and other opportunities as they arise. Participation at all choir events is necessary in order for each choir to do their best. Choir is part of the curriculum for grades 1 – 5. It is an elective for grades 6-8.
