Giving Back

October 22, 2016

Halloween turned into fundraising fun for the Capital Chordettes as they prepared two pumpkins for the Celebrity-Carved Pumpkin Contest for Children at Risk. The Chrodettes received help this year from the “Cherub and Junior Choirs of Glen Cairn United Church” who had a ball carving the pumpkins. The youngsters benefited from doing something positive for Autism and hopefully learned something too. The carving being done by such youngsters added a certain charm to the finished product. Autism is the charity of choice for the Capital Chordettes and we proudly support Children At Risk, a charitable organization providing services in the Greater Ottawa area to families of children diagnosed within the Autism Spectrum Disorders.

Swinging into Song!

May 19, 2016The Capital Chordettes got a little help from “Champ the Bear” at the Ottawa Champions Baseball Opening Night. Champ joined the Chordettes in the singing of the Star Spangled Banner and O Canada. It was a perfect evening for the opening of a new season and a great first WIN for the Ottawa Champions!

Capital Chordettes Qualify for International Contest!

14 May 2016 – The Capital Chordettes, a women’s a cappella singing group from Ottawa, Ontario entertained a captive audience at the 2016 Annual Area Contest held in Devens, Massachusetts. They were thrilled to qualify for the International Convention and Contest which will be held later this year in November.

To ready themselves for the contest, the Capital Chordettes performed their bridal theme song set that included “A Million To One You’re In Love” and “Get Me To The Church On time” for an audience of family and friends. Costumes of the song's era and cleverly crafted choreography enhanced their performance.

Also performing and qualifying for the International contest was the quartet Group Therapy. In the spirit of springtime their two song set included “When the Red, Red Robin Comes Bob, Bob, Bobbing Along” and “Don’t Sit under the Apple Tree”.

Capital Chordettes Swing into Spring!

2 April 2016 - The Capital Chordettes and Quartets welcomed spring with a Swing into Spring Big Band Dance and Concert.

Music was supplied by the local 14-piece Big Band, Standing Room Only. The audience danced to the vintage sounds of Glenn Miller and Duke Ellington, the swinging sounds of Frank Sinatra, some cool Latin jazz, and even some 50s music.

The Capital Chordettes Chorus, and quartets Group Therapy and Sounds Like Fun completed the evening's musical trip through time with some of our favourite selections from the 60s to the present: the toe-tapping Good Ole A Cappella, the 70s crowd-pleaser Happy Together, the inspiring African anthem Something Inside So Strong and even some Broadway songs.

Sounds like Fun

Audience members showed off their dancing talent during the band's sets and everyone enjoyed the special atmosphere provided by the glittering lights of the mirror ball. It was a wonderful evening, filled with music, fun and friendship!

The Capital Chordettes are a not for profit organization and hold various fundraisers throughout the year to fund travel and costumes. A portion of all monies raised is donated to our chosen charity, Children At Risk.
