The Capital Children’s Choir is highly versatile and has had years of experience performing and recording. Past performances have ranged from small charity events to massive stadium gigs. The choir is flexible and the size can range from a small group of 8 choristers to a massive chorus of 100. The choristers can sound highly polished or untrained; they can sing classical repertoire or experimental pop, and they can learn music by ear or with sheet music.
