The birth of the choir dates back to 2002 and took its name from the ancient eighteenth-century organ of the Mother Church of the village: the Principalone.
It was strongly desired by the parish priest of Capracotta Don Elio Venditti and by some parishioners who had long hoped for the creation of a parish choir.
Since 2002 the Principalone has become a point of reference for the Capracottese community not only in vivifying the Sunday liturgy and the great religious celebrations that take place in the country, but also in rediscovering that musical tradition very widespread in the past and that has always distinguished the dedicated Capracottese generations, even if in an amateur way, to singing.
All the members, united by the passion for singing, but above all by a strong sense of aggregation and respect that are peculiar qualities of mountain people and the indispensable glue to face the difficulties of the place and time are very committed so that the choir becomes more and more a reality worthy of the musical and cultural tradition of the country.
Their commitment was rewarded since on November 14, 2010 the choir of Capracotta was invited to animate the evening Mass at St. Peter’s Basilica.
