Youth Capella "Harmony" was founded in the town of Gatchina, near Saint-Petersburg Russia, in 1982. Since then it has been growing and developing, and today is Gatchina’s town choir, one of the best amateur choir of the Leningrad region, well-known in Saint-Petersburg and Russia.
The core members of Capella are creative young people aged 15-40. We are cheerful friends, almost a family. We travel a lot around Europe and take part in various Russian and international competitions. We have won a number of prizes from different locations in Europe and Russia.
