STATEMENT FROM THE Principal Officer

"Houston Choral Showcase is a show choir performing choral arrangements of popular music, and is the longest performing mixed community choral group in the Houston area. In addition to performing a distinctive repertoire that distinguishes us from classical choral groups, we also have the flexibility to adapt to different spaces and environments. With our professional grade sound equipment we can produce a quality sound in different venues, indoors or outdoors. That adaptability allows us to take our entertaining shows to those who might not otherwise be able to enjoy them, such as residents of senior living facilities and students at underprivileged public schools."
