Capella Regalis was founded in Halifax, Nova Scotia by Director Nick Halley in 2010. The choir comprises twelve men and fourteen boys (ages 7 – 13) and is modeled on the great Anglican tradition of men and boys church choirs. The choir rehearses at the University of King’s College Chapel and sings weekly Choral Evensongs at the Cathedral Church of All Saints in Halifax and performs concerts around Nova Scotia throughout the September – June season. Capella Regalis is a registered Society under the Societies Act of Nova Scotia and is an educational outreach programme of Musique Royale (www.musiqueroyale.com).
