Thinking About Joining Us?

» MAKE AN AUDITION APPOINTMENT «

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.

Houston Choral Showcase offers two performance groups: a mixed show choir and a high-energy singing and dancing group for women. Ladies who make an audition appointment will be asked for their preference. However, the Music Director will offer places according to where she thinks singers will best fit, which may not be the first choice.
