Because we feel that the world needs to continue hearing children sing in these trying times related to the COVID-19 health crisis, the Houston Children’s Chorus is committed to moving forward with Chorus activities this Fall. In the event that it is deemed to be safe by health experts and governmental authorities, our most preferred format would include in-person rehearsals in our large rehearsal hall that provides ample space for social distancing. However, we have adopted a virtual teaching platform for students who prefer to rehearse remotely. All students, virtual or in person, must attend concerts in person. We are currently offering a “virtual audition” for new and potential Chorus members – available on our website.
Although our regular concert venue at Rice University will not reopen until January, we have tentatively secured a large space for our Christmas Pops Concert where the audience and performers can adequately meet current social distancing standards. The Convent has also been confirmed for our Concert of Sacred Christmas Music.
We hope and pray that Covid-19 will end its heightened presence in the Houston area very soon. In the meantime, the Chorus will strive to do its part to ensure safety & caution for all our participants and the community. We have missed the angelic sound of children singing and look forward to the day when everything can be back to a healthy normal!
