Texas Master Chorale Ushers in New Season with Opening Concert

October 17 2023

Texas Master Chorale will delight audiences with music of peace, love, and joy throughout their 2023-24 concert season.

The season opens this Saturday, October 21, 2023 with “Peace,” featuring the Requiem by Maurice Duruflé, as well as music by Handel, Gjello, and Davis.

Brad Bouley, founder and artistic director of the Texas Master Chorale, has served as the Director of Choirs for Tomball High School for 20 years and was the Director of Fine Arts for Tomball ISD for 15 years until his retirement. As one of four individuals to receive the Texas Choral Excellence Award in 2018, Bouley leads a mixed choral ensemble of 100 auditioned singers who perform a variety of choral masterworks including classical, contemporary, sacred and secular.

Duruflé completed the Requiem in 1947 and it is his best-known work; a testament of faith, comfort and tranquility unequaled among music composed in the 20th century.

The concert will also include Handel’s “Zadok the Priest,” written for the coronation of King George II and  performed at every Royal coronation since; “Jubilate Deo,” a newly written work by Taylor Scott Davis; and “Ubi Caritas,” by Norwegian composer Ola Gjello.

“Peace” will take place at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, October 21 at John Wesley Church, 5830 Bermuda Dunes Drive in Houston, 77069. Tickets are $25; students are free with school I.D.

Tickets may be purchased at TexasMasterChorale.org, through the box office at 281-440-4850, or at the door. Concerts are generously sponsored by Houston Methodist Willowbrook Hospital and Texas Commission on the Arts.
