Beginning with its debut concert in January 2007, Capriccio has featured the talents of outstanding vocal musicians, many of whom are professional music educators and lead choirs themselves. The singers are united by a commitment to bring sophisticated and entertaining choral music to audiences wherever they perform.

Under founding Artistic Director Larry Griffin and Associate Director Karrie Horton, Capriccio has an expansive repertoire, ranging from sacred and classical masterpieces to fresh takes on great standards. The singers are frequently accompanied by professional instrumentalists, ranging from orchestral strings to jazz combos. In addition to its own full seasons, Capriccio has performed in collaboration with regional symphony orchestras and national tours of Game of Thrones Live Concert Experience, Rocktopia, and Final Fantasy 30th Anniversary Concert Tour.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for An American Celebration of Music are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
