TEXAS MASTER CHORALE
TO PERFORM “IN THESE STONES HORIZONS SING” ON APRIL 6
Texas Master Chorale will present their spring concert, featuring In These Stones Horizons Sing by Sir Karl Jenkins, on Saturday, April 6.
In These Stones Horizons Sing is a work for chorus and orchestra which was commissioned for the opening of the Wales Millennium Centre in 2004. It will feature Noel Bouley, baritone, as soloist. Bouley is a member at Deutsche Oper Berlin, of whom Opera Today wrote, “Baritone Noel Bouley is a rising star…. His rich vocalizing and well-considered musical journey resulted in a potent, cathartic performance.”
Other pieces in the concert will include Brahms’ Schicksalslied (Song of Destiny) and Dvorak’s Te Deum (We Praise Thee, O God). Bouley will again be a featured soloist in the Dvorak piece, along with Mané Galoyan. The young Armenian soprano recently completed her residency with the Houston Grand Opera Studio, where she made her role debut as Violetta in La Traviata.
The concert will take place at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, April 6, at John Wesley United Methodist Church, 5830 Bermuda Dunes Drive in Houston, 77069. Tickets are $25 in advance or $30 at the door; seniors 65 and older receive a $5 discount. Age 18 and younger are admitted free. To purchase tickets, call (281) 440-4850.
Texas Master Chorale is led by Brad Bouley, founder and artistic director. Bouley served as the Director of Choirs for Tomball High School for 20 years and was the Director of Fine Arts for Tomball ISD until his retirement in 2015. He is one of only four people to receive the 2018 Texas Choral Excellence Award, presented by the Texas Choral Directors Association.
