We’re very proud of our musical tradition which is ably led by our choir. It is one of the oldest in the south west of Scotland, having been established in the 1860′s. It is affiliated to the Royal School of Church Music. In addition to the regular services at St. John’s (Sung Eucharist and Evensong), the choir sings at weddings and concerts throughout the year, and at the now traditional Christmas Eve Festival of Carols at the Crichton Royal Church.

Membership of the choir, especially for children, encourages a high standard of self-discipline and provides a solid base for a future ability to read and perform music.

The choir practises each Wednesday from 6.30pm. Children are encouraged to join, if they show musical promise. It is not necessary to have singing experience, but it is important that the child can sing in tune. Children receive a small allowance to cover expenses, according to attendance. It is desirable that they read music, but not essential.

But it’s not all work! The choir also goes on trips, has days out and enjoys going to school musical events and pantomimes.
