Celebrate the return of the globe-trotting a cappella group Apollo5, and enjoy an afternoon of Renaissance polyphony, contemporary choral works, and vocal jazz! This critically acclaimed a cappella five-piece Apollo5 is one of Britain’s smallest but most formidable vocal groups. Comprising a soprano, mezzo-soprano, two tenors and a bass, the ensemble – which takes its name from the ancient Greek god of music – has become known for its rich, dynamic sound, demonstrating how powerful five voices alone can be.

Justin Roberts. A joyful afternoon of music for children (and their grown-ups) by the Emmy-nominated singer/songwriter Justin Roberts and his Not-Ready-For-Naptime Players. The Los Angelels Times calls Roberts “among the best craftsmen of sweet and silly kid tunes out there, [who makes] irresistible music out of small, well-observed moments from the lives of children and parents.”
The St. John's Bach Project
We are thrilled to present The St. John’s Bach Project, a series of concert and worship experiences that present the vocal and instrumental works of J.S. Bach, with a particular emphasis on his cantatas.
Admission is always free, a goodwill offering will be gratefully received. Complimentary childcare is provided.
“The final aim and reason of all music is nothing other than the glorification of God and the refreshment of the spirit.”
- J.S. Bach
