A tuition-free after-school music program focused on singing, musicianship, and community. Open to all treble voices in grades 3-8. Students perform about once per month, participate in special services, and collaborate with other ensembles.

ST. JOHN’S FAMILY NIGHTS

It has become a highlight for we parents who need to remember to laugh together and bask in the love and light of our children… while sipping a glass of wine with other adults! Low-pressure, come as you are, and do family night right. If you’ve never made it, this is the year! Stay tuned for dates and info!

ONLINE ENROLLMENT NOW OPEN!

We are heading into our 4th year of Choir School, and we are so excited for a year full of community through music.

“My daughter was painfully shy. She had trouble making friends because she was so self-conscious. The transformation we have seen in her is incredible and we are so happy. She will now sing and perform in front of audiences, has joined the musical production at the church, and we no longer think of her as a shy kid; and we are no longer worried about her socially. We are so grateful to the choir school for making this program available to any student.” – Amy-Lynn, mother of a student
