As I get older, attempting to carve out a life in music away from home, I find myself thinking often of how fortunate I am to know what I want to do with my life, to have the opportunity to do it, love it, and, occasionally, feel it touch the soul. All this makes life a joy to live, and I know, without a doubt, that it wouldn't exist if not for a wonderful ride that began in a church at the age of nine.

Capella Regalis offers a free music education to boys and girls in a centuries-old tradition. Although we encourage donations from families who are in a position to contribute, we have no dues requirement. This is to ensure that there are no financial barriers for any child to participate in Capella Regalis. We rely on the generosity of individual donors to maintain and grow our programs. Thank you for your help!
