About Us

The Capital City Chorus (CCC) is Ottawa’s premier men’s A Cappella chorus, with a rich 65+ year history. The men of our chorus come from all walks of life, ages, and musical skill levels. This forms a vibrant, and energetic gathering of men who come together each week to sing in fellowship and fun.

The Chorus is a member of the Ontario District of the Barbershop Harmony Society. The CCC is a five-time winner of the Society’s Ontario District Chorus Competition and has represented Ontario in the annual international barbershop competition. Quartets from the Chapter have won both District Championships and Seniors Championships, and have frequently represented the District at international competitions.

Each week, we continuously work on the quality of our vocal production, our repertoire, and prepare for any of our upcoming shows or events.
