Our Choir

Houston Choral Society

Houston Choral Society (HCS) is a not-for-profit, professional quality, civic chorus that has been serving the greater Houston area for more than 35 years. Our mission is to perform great choral music and advance the choral arts to Houston audiences. 
A wide variety of literature composes our repertoire, with works by Handel, Mozart, Brahms, Eric Whitacre, Morten Lauridsen, to more modern styles of music. Additionally, we often collaborate with professional musicians from the Houston area as well as outstanding local high school and collegiate choral ensembles.
Our 2022-2023 season started with a Brahms/Beethoven pairing with Brahms’ Nänie and Beethoven’s Mass in C. After a traditional Christmas concert and a night of Broadway Hits, the season ended with Jubilate Deo by Dan Forrest.
In 2023-2024, we will present Haydn’s Mass in Time of War, Handel’s Messiah, A concert of recent choral compositions entitled Music of the Moment, and Duruflé‘s Requiem. We hope you will join us for one or all of these exciting concerts!
HCS is funded in part by grants by such sponsors as the Houston Arts Alliance, the Texas Commission on the Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts.
