Hear the Future 2012 is our 13th annual invitational school choral festival, featuring three of our area’s top public and private-school choral ensembles.  If nothing else can restore one’s faith in humanity and the future, this show will do it.  True, Chamber Choir does a few pieces, but this day is about the kids, and [...]

F. Handel interspersed throughout.
Full concert and ticket [...]

‘Christmas at the Villa’ - four little words, and if you’ve been to one of the Houston Chamber Choir’s concerts at the Chapel of the Villa de Matel at the convent of the Sisters of Charity of the Incarnate Word, you know what I am talking about: stepping from the workaday, hum-dram world of Houston [...]

What would the holiday season be without the music of Handel’s Messiah?  The Houston Chamber Choir brings to you once again the Christmas portion of Messiah while giving Houston a performance of Schubert’s Magnificat, a piece not as well-known, but should be.
