Texas Master Chorale
Saturday, December 8th, 2012
3 p.m.

Founded in 1986, the Texas Master Chorale is an auditioned, mixed voice chorus from Tomball, Texas northwest of Houston.  Its 100 plus voices represent a large geographical area spanning Katy to the south, Conroe to the north and Brenham to the west.  We offer our northwest Houston audience an opportunity to hear a variety of choral experiences from major works accompanied by a full professional orchestra such as Haydn's "Mass in Time of War" (Paukenmesse/Missa in Tempore Belli) to lighter works such as "A Night of Rodgers and Hammerstein".  The chorale's highlights have included performances in Houston's  Wortham Center with the Texas Medical Center Orchestra, in Avery Fisher Hall in NYC and in St. Peter's Basilica in Rome at Sunday mass with Pope Benedict XVI and the 2011 world premiere of American composer Dan Forrest's major work Te Deum.  A Christmas tradition of the Texas Master Chorale is sharing the stage with a local high school choir giving these younger singers an opportunity to perform with a full orchestra and to see that singing is an avocation that can be pursued throughout a lifetime.
