Houston Childrens Chorus Inc

Rating: 4.9 stars   10 reviews

Issues: Arts & Culture

Location: P.O. Box 66567 Houston TX 77266 USA

Mission: The purpose of the Chorus is primarily educational, and its goal is to teach children to achieve high artistic standards through choral singing and performance.   The secondary purpose of the Chorus is to provide the community with a major choral group.   An equally important aspect of the Chorus is the nurturing of personal growth, teamwork, discipline, confidence, and self-control.
Programs: The Chorus performs over 75 concerts each year to audiences that annually exceed 750,000.  The Houston Children’s Chorus is divided into three levels or performing groups: 

·         The Preparatory Choir, an entry-level choir for children in grades 2 and 3, for which no audition is required;

·         The Town Choir, a training choir consisting of children in grades 4 through 8 who pass an audition; and

·         The Concert Choir, our highest-level choir, which consists of children who pass a rigorous audition after completing at least one year in the Town Choir and/or demonstrating strong musical ability and readiness to perform at an advanced level.

The Town Choir and Concert Choir rehearse for three hours every Sunday afternoon, from September through early June (except for breaks coinciding with major holidays). The Preparatory Choir rehearses for one hour each week.

My daughter has been in Houston Children's Choir for 2 years. We have really noticed how her beautiful voice continues to develop and improve thanks to HCC's professional voice training. HCC, through its many performance opportunities, has also allowed her to become comfortable singing in front of many people, whether in a group or solo. My daughter is looking forward to singing with HCC at Carngegie Hall this summer.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Very professional

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

travel and spread its beautiful message to countries all over the world. The blending of these children's voices has to be like angels singing in heaven!

It is a wonderful experience to listen to the chorus perform. The children are not only trained to sing beautifully but they are also taught discipline and how to perform on stage. Their events are extremely well organized and the staff handles all matters in a very professional manner.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

my child who has developed so much confidence in his singing.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

extremely well organized and professional.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

it could provide financial help to a lot of deserving students.
