Details of our 2014-15 season are now available. Season tickets are now on sale

Now in its 26th 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.

Audiences look forward to CapriCCio’s annual Remembrance Day and Christmas concerts, as well as other theme concerts which have included a concert for St. Patrick’s Day spiced with lively Irish folksongs, and Music of the North, which highlighted Scandinavian and Canadian composers.

CapriCCio was featured in the North American premiere of Christopher Butterfield’s Convoy PQ17 and has performed with the Victoria Symphony, the Civic Orchestra of Victoria, the Greater Victoria Youth Orchestra, the Pacific Baroque Orchestra and the Portland Baroque Orchestra.

CapriCCio Vocal Ensemble Society is a non-profit organization. Its concert season is supported entirely by its audiences and the generous contribution of its donors.
