Hear the Future:
Annual Invitational Choral Festival

Each year, the Houston Chamber Choir invites three outstanding choirs from the Greater Houston area to participate in their annual invitational choral festival. The elementary, middle, and high school choir featured serve to acknowledge and encourage high standards for all school choirs. Now entering its 20th year, thousands of students from over 40 of the area's finest school choral programs have participated in Hear the Future. This free 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.

Participating choirs

This coming year we are pleased to present The Kinder HSPVA Chorale from Houston ISD directed by Shannon Carter, Tompkins High School from Katy ISD directed by Christin Reinartz, and the Mu Varsity Chorale from North Shore High School in Galena Park ISD directed by Enrique Collazo .  This free Sunday 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.  We invite you to be with us for this uplifting afternoon. You will agree that the future has never sounded brighter.

Featured Guest Clinician: Dr. Rick Bjella, Artistic Director of the San Antonio Chamber Choir.

To celebrate this milestone anniversary, the Houston Chamber Choir will expand the festival to include a Saturday clinic for Title I high school choirs.  Leading the clinic will be Dr. Rick Bjella, who will provide expert guidance and encouragement to the high schools participating.
