Capital Chorus are a men's barbershop chorus based in Ealing, West London, and sing under the direction of Pippa Goodall.

History

Capital Chorus, formed in 1983, comprises around 30 members drawn mostly from West London and surrounding areas. The age range spans from 20s to 70s, and members come from a variety of professional, social and ethnic backgrounds. Our philosophy is to sing well, provide entertainment of the highest quality…. and have lots of fun doing it! We also believe in supporting local good causes.

Over the last 30 years the Chorus has become a familiar sight at theatres, clubs, corporate events and fund raisers throughout London, with our wide repertoire of songs from the twenties to the eighties proving popular with audiences of all ages and backgrounds. We sing Beatle songs, Gospel, jazz and other fun songs.

Capital Chorus has won three national awards at the BABS Convention (the annual British championship for Barbershop Singing). In 2009 and in 2011 the club won the prize for the “Most Improved Chorus”; in 2007 we received the accolade of “Best Small Chorus". The chorus has since been steadily improving its scores.

The group also won first prize in the open choir competition at the Ealing Music Festival for four years running, in 2007, 2008, 2009 and 2010.
