Houston Children's Chorus Set to Perform at Grand 1894 Opera House on 7/20
The Grand 1894 Opera House will become "The Grand Ole Opry" on Sunday, July 20 at 4pm, when the Houston Children's Chorus presents a salute to country music. One-hundred youngsters from HCC culminate their annual week-long Galveston residency and workshop for students from Galveston to Harris County and beyond, grades 3 - 6, with a rousing Summer Pops Concert. The entire family will enjoy their special arrangements of "Grandma's Featherbed," "Rocky Top Tennessee," "Wabash Cannonball," "Ring O' Fire," "I Will Always Love You," and other memorable selections.
Founded in 1989, the mission of The Houston Children's Chorus is to teach children to achieve high artistic standards through choral singing and performances, while providing the community with an outstanding children's chorus. Each summer, the Chorus hosts auditions for its week-long summer program and summer pops concert. Galveston children in grades 3 through 6 are selected from area schools. Houston children pay their way to spend the week in Galveston to work alongside the Galveston children. Stephen Roddy, Founder & Director of the Houston Children's Chorus, is the choral clinician and conductor. Stevie Rivers Rawlings, a nationally-acclaimed choreographer from Verona, N.J., is the clinician and choreographer for the week.
