The Houston Children’s Chorus, comprised of more than 200 children, will present folk songs from around the world, as well as songs of peace and unity in its Spring Concert. The performance will take place on Sunday, April 30, 2017 at 5:00 pm in the magnificent acoustics of Stude Concert Hall in the Alice Pratt Brown Hall at Rice University. Special guest choirs from the Chorus’ “Music In The Schools” program for inner-city schools will also be featured, including M C Williams Middle School, MacGregor Elementary School, Crespo Elementary School and Kipp Sharp Academy. The versatility of the Houston Children’s Chorus rests in their ability to perform a wide range of music from Motown to Bach, which has endeared them to audiences throughout Texas, the United States, and the world.
Conductor of The Colors of the World performance is Stephen Roddy. Stepheny Scott and Laura Taylor are the assistant conductors. Accompanist is Bryan Anderson of Rice University and St. Paul’s Methodist Church.
