Grace United Methodist Church will be hosting “Capriccio” on Sunday, April 2 at 3 p.m. for a free concert.
Beginning with its debut concert in January 2007, Capriccio has featured the talents of outstanding vocal musicians, a good number of whom are degreed music educators and lead choirs themselves. They are united by a commitment to bring sophisticated and entertaining choral music to their audiences.
Under founding artistic director Larry Griffin, former Washington High School choir director from 1983-1991, 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 the Mansfield Symphony Orchestra and Chorus, the Central Ohio Symphony Orchestra, and The Ohio State University Orchestra, Chorale and Symphonic Choir.
As part of its commitment to the education of young musicians, Capriccio sponsors choral workshops and performances for local high schools to work along side Capriccio with nationally prominent composers.
Capriccio will perform to help the community celebrate the 200th anniversary of Grace United Methodist Church in Washington Court House.
