Cappella Cantorum MasterWorks Chorus is grateful to announce that the 2016-2017 MESSIAH concerts, performed in collaboration with the Old Lyme Congregational Church Choir, have been supported in part by Shoreline Arts Alliance, Inc. in partnership with the Connecticut Office of the Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts.

Introducing…Our New Website!

Here it is!  It’s LIVE!  Our brand new website!!!

Cappella Cantorum, Inc. does not have an office.  It operates as a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation out of Post Office Box 714 in Essex, through a network including its founding Music Director, Accompanist, volunteer Board of Directors and singers, making John Winthrop Middle School its “home base” for most rehearsals and most of its MasterWorks Chorus production performances.  This keeps our overhead costs very low, but also makes it challenging to connect with you, our audience.
