Helping One of Our Own

HOUSTON, TX – Two weeks ago, Hurricane Harvey blew through Houston, bringing more flooding and devastation to the city than has ever been seen before. So many lost so much and are still in the process of recovering. One such individual is the Houston Chamber Choir’s own Jason Watt. Jason is the head choir director at Kingwood High School, a school that sustained so much damage it will be closed the remainder of the school year. Many Kingwood teachers lost items in their classrooms during the storm, and Jason was no exception. Devastatingly, Jason lost his entire choral library; thousands of dollars worth of music and a collection he has spent years cultivating.

Houston Chamber Choir is dedicated to helping Jason rebuild his choral library. At our opening concert of the season, This American Voice, we are inviting all Houston-area choral directors to help replenish Jason’s library by bringing in 36 copies of one or more pieces on Jason's wish list. These scores or a completed order form from a music store will entitle you to a $15 ticket - more than 50% off!

Click here to see Jason’s choral library wish list. Once you see a piece you would like to donate, please mark that you will be bringing that piece with an ‘x’ in the appropriate column. If there an ‘x’ next to a piece already, additional copies are not needed! 

The Chamber Choir is so grateful for the chance to come together with the Houston choral community in order to help rebuild our city not only with the healing music of our concert, but with the collective effort and warmth Houstonians are known for.
