The Gentlemen of St John's


About Us

Described by BBC Music Magazine as “an immaculately blended, responsive, interactive consort,” the Gentlemen of St John’s is a professional vocal ensemble made up of the choral and organ scholars of the Choir of St John’s College, Cambridge. As members of the College Choir, the Gents sing seven services a week under the direction of Andrew Nethsingha, developing the full, warm, expressive sound for which both the Choir and the Gents are famous. The Gentlemen of St John’s are particularly noted for their versatility, with a repertoire ranging from early sacred music and folk songs to more modern close-harmony arrangements of jazz standards, pop classics, and contemporary hits.

In recent years, the Gents have had the privilege to perform at such venues as the Cadogan Hall, the Royal Albert Hall and the Sydney Opera House, and recent performances have taken them to Hong Kong, Singapore, the United States, Germany, France, and the Netherlands. In addition to frequent broadcasts with the full choir, the Gents were recent guests on Radio 3’s In Tune. They also enjoy regularly leading workshops in the UK and abroad.

The Gents have built up an extensive discography. Like The King’s Singers or the Queen’s Six, the Gents perform and record many of their own arrangements. In December of 2017, the Gents released their latest CD, White Christmas.
