A Capella Singers, an auditioned choir, was founded in 1975 by Ron James, its first Musical Director and current Patron. And yes, that's meant to be Capella with one 'p' - it was Ron's musical joke.
The choir comprises around 30 members and performs 3 concerts a year with repertoire ranging from Renaissance to the present day. Concerts are usually presented at First Church in Invercargill. The current Musical Director is Christine McLeod.
In 2009, a smaller group - A Capella Concertino was formed to perform more challenging repertoire.
Guest soloists have included Jonathan Lemalu, Howard Harvey, Judy Bellingham and Rebecca Ryan.
The choir is currently looking for new members - particularly altos, first sopranos and basses. If you are interested in singing with us, please contact the Musical Director, Christine McLeod on 027 270 5557
