The Choir of St John’s College, Cambridge is one of the finest collegiate choirs in the world – known and loved by millions from its broadcasts, concert tours and over 90 recordings.

Alongside this discipline, the Choir is particularly proud of its happy, relaxed and mutually supportive atmosphere.
