Cappella Festiva Chamber Choir has garnered a reputation throughout the Hudson Valley for producing creative, high-quality concerts of compelling classical music. What started as a small group of distinguished musicians who wished to perform the music of Johann Sebastian Bach has become a stunning choir performing an eclectic musical repertoire, often collaborating with the Hudson Valley Philharmonic and other fine area musicians.

Cappella Festiva Treble Choir was formed 12 years ago to pass on the love of choral music to future generations. The Treble Choir provides an exceptional artistic opportunity for young singers of the Hudson Valley through education in vocal training, musicianship skills, and the exploration of challenging, diverse repertoire for treble voices, ages 10 to 17.
This is an auditioned ensemble that rehearses Mondays from 5:45-7:15 p.m. in the Vassar College Chapel. Membership is chosen through choral interviews. A choral interview is a relaxed, friendly audition in which the director will talk to the singer and listen to him/her sing a short song. We are looking for participants who love to sing, who have good pitch and rhythm, and who will be committed and focused during rehearsals.
