Tradition
    Old Capitol Chorus meets year around. Our meeting place is Robert A Lee Recreation Center of Iowa City.  We've been meeting for 56 years.  We've performed in many venues here in Iowa City/Coralville.  We've traveled all over the Midwest as a chorus representing the accomplished musical traditions in this area.  Performing for local houses of worship, care facilities, hospitals, private invitations, restaurants, grand openings and to many others to mention.  Valentine season and our annual entertainment show are a couple of our long lasting and favorite performing opportunities.  


We are a non profit Community Music Organization open to men and women singers.  
We thank those able and willing to support our mission through their donations.
You can support us by donating, spreading the word and inviting us to sing.
The chorus has had many supporters throughout the years and we thank them.
