The Grammy award winning Houston Chamber Choir welcomes renowned British composer Bob Chilcott for the American premiere of his newly revised Circlesong, a complete life cycle based on indigenous writings. Set for adult and youth choirs and percussion ensemble, each movement expresses a unique facet of the love and loss that was the Native American experience as our nation expanded westward.

This unique concert experience is an extraordinary opportunity to see a world premiere by one of Great Britain’s major musical influencers. Thus, Houston Chamber Choir invites area high school choirs and their directors to attend free of charge. In order to take advantage of this opportunity to hear Chilcott’s work presented by the Houston Chamber Choir, please contact Managing Director Mariam Khalili at info@houstonchamberhchoir.org. Seating is provided on a first-come, first-served basis.

Houston Chamber Choir’s Luminary Society will host a party immediately following the Feb. 23 concert. Full details will be announced to all ticketed patrons. Guests will enjoy light bites and beverages while mingling with special guest, Bob Chilcott, Houston Chamber Choir Singers and Artistic Director Robert Simpson.
