A Choir for Boys at St. John’s Church


We are excited to announce the refounding of the St John’s Boys Choir under the direction of parishioner Kristi Bryson (Professional soprano and graduate of the Royal College of Music). St John's Church has a long tradition of musical excellence in Savannah and we aim to bring the boys of our city the joy of choral singing at a high level: singing the best repertoire of the Anglican tradition with the benefit of professional vocal training. The choir welcomes boys from the parish and from the broader community. Interested boys and their families need no other qualifications than an interest in music and a willingness to commit to regular rehearsals. Prospective choristers should be at least 7 years of age. 

The choir will meet once a week to rehearse and will perform once per term at evensong, typically on Sunday evenings. Placement tests will be held the week of November 27. Interested families should write to Kristi Bryson  to schedule an appointment .( ) For more information, click here.
