Where does the chorus perform?

GMCH and BCWC perform their regular concerts at Resurrection Metropolitan Community Church, 2025 W 11th Street, Houston, TX 77008.  Together, the Bayou City Chorale often performs at Festival Hill Institute in Round Top, TX in December. Other special appearances and free concerts may be scheduled throughout the season at various venues.


What is the financial commitment?

It is the policy of BCPA that no member is denied participation based upon financial limitation, and we offer a scholarship program to assist with dues and other limited expenses. However, dues help defray our operating costs, and singers are expected to pay dues except in hardship situations. Basic membership dues are $180 for the full September through June season, payable in two increments. This does not include the cost of standard formal performance attire, typically a one-time expense of $100 and up. Additional expenses may be incurred for attire, costumes, props, special rehearsals, and special events.


Are there other singing opportunities?
Yes, as a member of GMCH or BCWC, one also becomes a member of the Bayou City Chorale (BCC). We also feature several auditioned small ensemble groups that perform at regular concerts and other special engagements.

 

I am not ready for the stage. What else can I do to help?
If you are not comfortable being on stage with GMCH or BCWC  just yet, you may become a Non-Performing Member. These individuals help the organization in all manner of volunteer roles based upon skills and preference--including recruiting, choreography, clerical, marketing, fundraising, box office, and other areas. BCPA is a volunteer-driven organization, and can always use a helping hand! To volunteer, send an email to volunteer@bcpahouston.org and ask our Volunteer Coordinator for an "Area of Volunteer Interest" form and we will be glad to mail, e-mail or fax one to you.

Joining is Easy


Joining is easy! Our choruses do not require an audition. Instead, we would rather help you work to become a better singer. After all, you don't get better without practice! Here, you will find a family--men and/or women who have come together to sing regardless of one's race, creed, age, religion, or sexual orientation.

 

We strive to be the best face of diversity for the city of Houston!
