The Houston Symphony Chorus Endowment was established in 1997 to celebrate the Chorus' 50th anniversary. Over time, the Endowment has grown significantly thanks to the ongoing generosity of Chorus members and friends. Projects partly funded by the Endowment have included our a cappella CD, Voices of the Symphony, and performances of Mendelssohn’s great oratorio, St Paul and Handel's oratorio, Israel in Egypt.
Next season, the Endowment will help fund Mahler's Symphony No. 8, The Symphony of a Thousand. This concert series will feature an expanded choir of current and alumni members. In addition, there are plans to establish a mentoring program to give talented students in selected Houston-area high schools an opportunity to perform this work with the Chorus.
A gift to the Houston Symphony Chorus Endowment is a lasting one. We invite all who love choral music to become Chorus supporters and help us secure our artistic legacy for generations to come.
