The Houston Choral Society (HCS) is a not-for-profit professional-quality civic chorus that serves the greater Houston area. Our mission is to bring great choral music to enrich the soul and advance the choral arts to Houston audiences. We enjoy singing a wide variety of repertoire, including works by Handel, Mozart, Brahms, Eric Whitacre, Morten Lauridsen, to more popular styles of music. Additionally, we often collaborate with professional musicians from the Houston area and as well as outstanding local high school choral ensembles.
The Houston Choral Society recently performed Haydn’s Lord Nelson Mass at Carnegie Hall in New York City. Additionally, they have completed five international tours performing in England/Scotland, Italy, Hungary/Austria/Czech Republic, Ireland, and Germany/Austria.
The Houston Choral Society is funded in part by grants from Harris County and the Texas Commission on the Arts through the Houston Arts Alliance.
