About Us

_

The Montgomery County Choral Society is a non-profit organization formed in 1972 to bring great choral music of the world to Montgomery County and Montgomery County to great choral music. Numbering some 30 members, the group has continued to grow steadily both in numbers and performance quality.  Presently, membership averages around 70 singers including young adults to retired persons, encompassing varied professions, and blending many levels of musical training and experience.  Formerly called The Conroe Chorale, the group has attracted singers from all parts of Montgomery County and beyond.  In 1988, the name of the organization was changed to reflect its membership.

Each concert season includes three performances in Conroe.  Occasionally the Choral Society sings at public gatherings and for special groups.  The Note-ables, a small women’s ensemble, provides musical programs for various community groups.  Professional musicians are employed for major concerts, producing an appealing blend of professional and amateur talent.

The Choral Society has commissioned and premiered new works.  Since 1987, the group has awarded scholarships to outstanding choral students in area high schools.  The Choral Society has made three international concert tours to England, Wales, Ireland, and Europe.

In June of 2014 MCCS performed The World Beloved: A Bluegrass Mass at Carnegie Hall with the Masterworks Chorus, the bluegrass band Monroe Crossing, which premiered the work at Carnegie Hall in 2013, and Philip Brunelle, director. In March of 2016, MCCS will join other choristers in performing Requiem for the Living by Dan Forrest in the historical St. Louis Cathedral in New Orleans. The chorale performed Requiem for the Living in March of 2015 during its final program.
