About CapriCCio

CapriCCio Vocal Ensemble is an auditioned choir for adult voices based in beautiful Victoria, British Columbia, and is directed by the talented Michael Gormley.

Now in its 29th season, CapriCCio continues to captivate audiences with outstanding performances of choral music ranging from the 15th century to the present, from Tallis and Gabrieli to Pärt, Whitacre and even younger contemporaries, from simple folk songs to Bach’s B Minor Mass and Handel’s Messiah, all performed in CapriCCio’s signature style: virtuosic clarity with a sensitive, compelling spirit.

All concerts are held at Christ Church Cathedral, located on the corner of Quadra at Rockland, Victoria, BC.

CapriCCio welcomes experienced singers who read music well and like to sing in choirs. If you are interested in auditioning for CapriCCio, please send an expression of interest to: choir@capriccio.ca, and we will arrange an audition for you.

An evening to remember – glorious music from CapriCCio…

What a wonderful concert; felt completely enveloped by the music and voices; congrats to all…

Excellent performance last night! Cum Sancto and other fast bits so deliciously articulated, Gloria & Osanna made me want to dance…

CapriCCio’s performance tonight of the Bach B Minor Mass was wonderful. Congratulations to everyone. I thoroughly enjoyed the evening. We are very fortunate to have such high calibre performances of great classical music…
