AFA’s Houston Girls Chorus will join the Houston Ballet for 21 performances in their production of The Nutcracker running November 28 – December 28 at Wortham Theater Center (500 Texas Ave, 77002) in downtown Houston. This is the third consecutive year that HGC has performed with the Houston Ballet in this seasonal favorite.
“We are extremely proud to once again have Houston Girls Chorus featured in Houston Ballet’s The Nutcracker. Each year is a fantastic opportunity for our young ladies to gain performance experience in a top-tier professional environment. Our long-standing collaborations with Houston Ballet, Houston Ballet Academy and HGOco have allowed this group of girls to be a part of a Houston holiday tradition and we could not be more pleased,” says Dr. Michael Remson, Executive and Artistic Director of AFA.
HGC represents an ensemble of young women in grades 7 – 12 from all over the greater Houston area. Led by Artistic Director, Kimberly Tobola, each member receives ensemble coaching, individual training, instruction in performance practice, and a variety of performance opportunities throughout the year. A schedule of this season’s Nutcracker performances featuring HGC is available at www.AFAtexas.org/concerts.
