Panola College invites the community to enjoy an afternoon of classic music
performed by the Houston Boy choir on Sunday, April 2, 2017, in the Q.M.
Martin Auditorium at 2:00 pm.
Houston Boy choir was established by the Houston Independent School District
in 1962 as The Singing Boys of Houston. Becoming an independent arts
organization in 1991, today Houston Boy choir continues to provide boys in
the Houston Metropolitan area with the exciting opportunity for vocal music
study and choral performance.
Houston Boy choir is a multi-tiered program from childhood to manhood, where
boys create lifelong friendships and a sense of community, building
character, developing life skills, and nurturing a lifelong appreciation
for the arts. Committed to developing choirs representative of the
diversity of the Harris County and greater Houston area they boast a strong
scholarship base. The musical repertoire is widely varied and draws on
literature from all styles, languages and periods of music history. Through
the mastery and public performance of their music, the choristers develop
discipline, confidence, and a loving understanding of art.
As the oldest organization of its kind for boys and music Houston Boy choir
sets the level of excellence for educational outcomes in children’s
performing ensembles. In addition to presenting concerts throughout the
city, Houston Boy choir also collaborates performances with the Opera in the
Heights, the Moores’ School of Music, Houston Bach Society, Hope Stone
Dance and many more, making Houston Boy choir vital to Houston's elite
artistic profile. It most recently performed Mahler's monumental 8th
Symphony with the Houston Symphony Orchestra.
As one of the country’s premiere boy choirs, HBC serves as ambassadors,
representing our city, state and nation during annual concert tours across
North America, and throughout Europe and Asia, South Africa and most
recently, Alaska. To learn more visit www.houstonboychoir.org.
