Award winning music director, writer and published composer, Kathleen Shanks founded Capital Arts in 1989. The company consists of the internationally famous Capital Arts Children's Choir, Angelic Voices, London Cantamusica, Opera Capital Arts, Music Theatre, Stage Stars, and the Opera Minor Education Outreach Scheme.

THE CAPITAL ARTS CHILDREN'S CHOIR is a world class children's choir with an international reputation. The choir's extensive biography of recitals, concerts, operas, musicals, radio and TV performances, films and international concert tours, makes it one of the busiest and most successful children's choirs in the UK with an unequalled biography of professional performances. The choir's ease with all genres of music makes Capital Arts a natural choice for musicians and promoters.
