Choir School Enrollment Underway

We are excited to announce that the St. John’s Choir School, beginning this August, is now accepting enrollment applications for this fall! A vision originating more than 10 years ago as an initiative of the 2019-2024 strategic plan, the Choir School is a culmination of years of planning and prayer and an opportunity for the music ministry to broaden its impact in the Tallahassee community and surrounding counties. 

Since the inception of the Junior Choir in 1930, St. John’s has valued the leadership of children and youth in the singing of hymns and anthems in worship, and since 1990, has participated in the music education curriculum of the Royal School of Church Music in the teaching of choristers. The Choir School takes this historical chorister program deeper by offering our resources (dedicated music theory instruction, keyboard lessons, vocal coaching) to all children regardless of means or background, at no cost to families.

We invite you to watch the video above to learn more about the Choir School’s curriculum. Programming will be offered three days a week after school in addition to leading worship on Sunday mornings. The Choir School will call upon the tradition of cathedral-based schools in the Anglican tradition while adapting to the needs of a modern, urban community.

With our parish’s bicentennial on the horizon, this is an exciting time for the church to step forward and offer this wonderful opportunity for area young people – those both in and outside our walls, and financially restricted families who might not even be able to dream of the extracurricular activities the St. John’s Choir School will provide. Save the date for a Choir School Kickoff and Open House on Sunday, August 20 after the 10 AM service!

Please email Marissa Hall, Assistant Director of Music, for enrollment information.
