Profile

The genesis of Capella Antiqua was need; a deep need to study and sing music of the highest artistic and historical significance, a need to sing fun music, and a need to share this with the wider community. Capella Antiqua is the result. Our first two seasons will present an amazingly diverse series of programs, from the Italian Renaissance, to the Mexican Baroque, to Romantic Era Germany, to choral music from the stage.

Our goal is not the dry musicology of the unremittingly academic.  Our repertoire is chosen because it is rewarding and fun to sing, not just "important." We’re all about singing great music, whether well-known or not, with the highest level of artistry we can manage.

Capella Antiqua is a musical cooperative. Proceeds from our activities first pay expenses, then are shared among performers as available.
