Capital Accord Chorus, an award-winning women’s a cappella chorus, draws from a variety of musical styles to deliver high energy performances that are remembered by their audiences long after the last chord has rung. Bringing together the talents of a diverse group of female singers from the Washington, DC, metropolitan area, members of the Capital Accord Chorus join their voices to create the familiar and unexpected sounds of a cappella harmony that entertain audiences of all ages. Under the direction of Sherry Stanton, an accomplished a cappella performer in both the contemporary and barbershop styles, Capital Accord Chorus is known not only for the sounds they create but also for their memorable performances that touch audiences with humor, nostalgia, and pure joy.
