Piano Level, Jones Hall
Join us in the lobby prior to the show for a free performance by the Houston Choral Showcase.

Houston Choral Showcase is a show choir made up of talented adult singers directed by Jen Young. What sets this group apart from other choirs is their creative repertoire of pop, rock, disco, jazz, show tunes, patriotic pieces, and more, accompanied by lively choreography. And with entertaining music like that, the singers can’t just stand still with their heads buried in printed music – they memorize the songs so that they can look the audience in the eye, dance, and have fun! The ensemble has sung at public and private events all over the Greater Houston area (and occasionally beyond) since 1932, bringing distinctive performances that are filled with dynamic energy and great singing.
