HBU Choral Ensembles
All HBU students are invited to sing in one of our choirs. They are conducted by Dr. Terre Johnson, director of Choral Activities and chair of the Music Department. HBU choirs are known for their artistry and performances of a wide range of repertoire. Choral students often receive opportunities to perform throughout Houston and on tour in the US and abroad. They also enjoy the opportunity to work with outstanding conductors and composers such as Alice Parker, Morten Lauridsen and J.A.C. Redford, all of whom have visited campus.
HBU’s largest chorus, University Singers, is open to all students after a brief interview with the conductor. They perform on their own and in collaboration with Schola Cantorum, frequently representing HBU in church services, concerts and tours.
HBU’s “flagship” chorus, Schola Cantorum, is an auditioned ensemble that performs the most sophisticated choral repertoire. To be selected as a member of Schola Cantorum, students must demonstrate expertise in sight-singing, excellence in vocal development, and a deep commitment to the artistry of the choir.
For information about auditioning for Schola Cantorum, interviewing prior to joining University Singers, or inviting an HBU choir to perform, please contact:
