Concert Chorale presented by FACE Promenade Series

The Moores School Concert Chorale is the University of Houston’s premiere large choral ensemble. The group has been under the direction of Dr. Betsy Cook Weber since 2002. Since that time the group has appeared as an invited choir before the 2004 national convention of the American Musicological Society, the 2005 and 2008 Texas Music Educators Association conventions and the 2007 American Choral Directors Association national convention in Miami. They have been described as “absolutely outstanding” and “stunning.” In 2015, Chorale members traveled to compete at the Eisteddfod in Llangollen, Wales and were invited to represent the United States at this prestigious festival's opening night concert. At that world-renowned festival, Chorale won or placed in every category in which they entered, including a first price in the most coveted category of all, Chamber Choir. The Concert Chorale will perform music by Copland, Praulins, Shaw-Parker and Hogan.
