The Houston Chamber Choir joins the new instrumental group Loop38 in the regional premiere of Mass for the Endangered by young American composer Sara Kirkland-Snider. A celebration, and an elegy, for the natural world, this extraordinary work is an appeal for greater awareness, urgency, and action. At once jubilant and reverent, Mass for the Endangered is a meditation on all that nature has to offer and what they can offer in return.
Each year, the Houston Chamber Choir invites three outstanding school choirs from the Greater Houston area to be the special guests at our annual invitational choral festival, Hear the Future.
This year’s three participating ensembles and their directors include:
This community concert gives audience members a chance to show their support and appreciation for the outstanding work being done by music educators and their talented singers. To further its positive impact on our region’s school choral programs, Hear the Future now includes a VIP Choral Clinic for eight high schools. This season’s clinic will be led by Dr. Jennaya Robison, Director of Choral Studies in the Conservatory at the University of Missouri-Kansas City.
