Houston's Children's Chorus to Perform Holiday Pops Concert at the Grand, 12/22

Houston's premier young choral group, the Houston Children's Chorus, brings their holiday spirit to The Grand 1894 Opera House for one not-to-miss family-friendly encore performance Sunday, December 22 at 4pm. Conducted by Stephen Roddy, these amazing, charming performers have entertained audiences at the Super Bowl, The Vatican and Carnegie Hall, in addition to performances for Presidents of the United States on 28 different occasions. Sponsored by Houston Family Magazine, you are certain to enjoy your seasonal favorites, audience sing-a-longs and a special guest from the North Pole! This performance is part of Galveston's Passport to Holiday Magic activities and events.

Chorus founder and director, Stephen Roddy says, "With more than 100 auditioned children singing, these concerts are the most inspiring events to help showcase the true spirit of the season. Our kids represent Houston's finest, and their angelic voices are beyond compare." Considered "one of the top five children's performing ensembles in the United States," many of the alumni have appeared in movies, been finalists on American Idol, and excelled in Metropolitan Opera competitions as well as other performances.

Don't miss these "small ambassadors to the world" as they showcase their high artistic standards at this festive holiday event.

This performance is one of over 1,000 magical events taking place during this holiday season on Galveston Island.
