The Kingwood Chorale and Chamber Orchestra (KCCO) strive to make an impact on the Lake Houston community through entertainment and education.
In residence at Lone Star College-Kingwood, KCCO performs choral masterworks for the local and surrounding areas. These performances have not only enriched the community but also raised money for professional-level concerts and music scholarships.
“Our singers are skilled in reading music. They love the challenge of working on sometimes difficult, but timeless works of art with their fellow community members,” said Dr. Todd Miller, artistic director and conductor.
KCCO seeks experienced singers for their 31st season. Accomplished vocalists who can read music are invited to audition on Aug. 19 and Aug. 26 from 5-7 p.m. The auditions will take place in the LSC-Kingwood Music Instructional Building.
“The Kingwood Chorale needs singers to continue to expand. Specifically, we need tenors and basses to help balance the soprano and alto sections which are also large,” Miller said. “The chorale regularly sings with 75-90 people, but occasionally will expand the rosters for large works, as dictated by the composers.”
Highlights from the upcoming season include Handel’s beloved “Messiah,” Haydn’s “Mass in the Time of War,” and a newly commissioned Requiem by Houston composer John Crabtree.
