the The Grammy® Award-winning Houston Chamber Choir, under the direction of Founder and Artistic Director Robert Simpson, will present the 22nd Annual Hear the Future Invitational Choir Festival on Sunday, January 30 at the beautiful sanctuary of South Main Baptist Church. Each year the Houston Chamber Choir invites three outstanding school choirs from the greater Houston area to participate in its choral festival by invitation. Thousands of students from the area’s top K-12 choral programs have participated in Hear the Future over the years. This year’s community concert features elementary, middle and high school choirs and is free and open to the public. The event will entertain and inspire audiences when they “hear” that the future of choral music is bright.
To strengthen its positive impact on the region’s school choir programs, Hear the Future now includes a VIP choir clinic for eight high schools, many of which are Title I. The clinic will take place on Saturday January 29, 2022, led by Dr Eduardo García-Novelli, a University of Houston graduate who is the new director of choral activities at the University of Kansas.
Featured are the Parker Elementary School Advanced Chorus led by Marianna Parnas-Simpson (Houston ISD), the North Shore Middle School Choir conducted by Erin Huston (Galena Park ISD) and the Cy-Fair Chorale conducted by Nicholas Likos (Cypress-Fairbanks ISD). TProfessional singers from the Houston Chamber Choir conducted by Robert Simpson will also perform. Houston Chamber Choir music teachers and educational consultants Sally Schott and Eddie Quaid are leading the planning for the festival.
