Houston Children's Chorus

The Houston Children's ChorusThe Houston Children's Chorus was founded in 1989 by Stephen Roddy. The Chorus involves over 275 children in grades 3 through 8, by annual audition. Weekly rehearsals are held in 5 locations around greater Houston. 

The Houston Children's Chorus has performed concerts in New Zealand, Hong Kong, Carnegie Hall, Russia, England, Scotland, and Italy. They have performed for former President and Mrs. George Bush on eleven occasions, including the the 1990 World Economic Summit, the 1992 Republican Convention, the 150th anniversary celebration of the Smithsonian Institute, and numerous ribbon-cutting ceremonies. The Chorus is frequently featured with the Houston Masterworks Chorus in performances of major classical works, and soloists from the Chorus have performed with the Houston Symphony, Houston Grand Opera, Theater Under The Stars, and Alley Theater. The Chorus was featured in eight performances of the Broadway touring production of "Joseph And The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat" at Jones Hall. In 1999, the Chorus performed for the opening ceremonies of the World Energy Congress and performed with Celine Dion at Compaq Center. In the summer of 1999 the Chorus performed for Mass at the Vatican in Rome and St. Mark's Basilica in Venice.

Truly Houston's ambassadors to the world, this incredible group of children perform for over 750,000 people annually. Further information about the upcoming concerts and auditions can be obtained by calling 713.650.3800, or by visiting the chorus web site at www.houstonchildren.org.
