Houston Children’s Chorus Celebrates 25 Years This Weekend

The chorus may be turning 25, but they’re still young at heart.

This Sunday, the Houston Children’s Chorus is celebrating their 25th anniversary in grand style with their spring concert and gala, “Young at Heart.” The program, which takes place at  5pm inside Rice’s Stude Concert Hall, will include some of the best-loved children’s songs, including “Sing, Sing a Song,” “I Won’t Grow Up,” and “I’d Like to Teach the World to Sing.”
 
Founded in 1989, the chorus has an impressive list of accolades. They’ve sung for the U.S. President over 28 times, have given concerts across North America, Europe and Asia, and have performed onstage with some of music’s best-known vocalists, including Celine Dion and Josh Groban.
 
Stephen Roddy, the founder and artistic director, stopped by to talk to Houston Public Media’s Amy Bishop about the past 25 years with the Houston Children’s Chorus and gave some highlights of this weekend’s milestone celebration.
