We’re looking for singers who enjoy performing pop, rock, disco, jazz, and show tunes and who want to spread the fun of show choir music throughout the Greater Houston area.

Here’s a brief slide show from the all-choir rehearsal retreat held August 2018:

2018 fall retreat

Houston Show Choir offers two performance groups: a mixed show choir (Vocal Impact) and a high-energy singing and dancing group for women (Heart & Soul). Ladies who make an audition appointment will be asked for their preference. However, the Artistic Director will offer places according to where she thinks singers will best fit, which may not be the first choice.
