Our Mission

The mission of International Voices Houston is to build cultural bridges across Houston's diverse population by exploring and performing music from around the world, and educating the public about the art of choral singing through concerts of outstanding integrity and through community outreach efforts.

Our Motto

Global voices inspiring cultural understanding

Our Vision

International Voices Houston is a multicultural choir in Houston, Texas, that inspires, educates, and brings joy to its audiences through world music. We perform international choral works in their unique styles and languages. We celebrate our cultural diversity as part of the greater Houston community through our collaborative environment of camaraderie, learning, and growth.

We sing because we love music, but we sing with International Voices Houston to form diverse friendships, nourish ourselves, have fun, and enrich our lives in Houston. International Voices Houston enhances our quality of life, regardless of our musical background, and its non-tangible spirit is one of “home.”

Artistically, we strive to expand our musical repertoire, continually developing concerts that are thought-provoking and viscerally engaging for our ever-broadening audiences.

Through our programs, International Voices Houston aims to further the principles set forth in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. In addition, we seek to broaden our presence in the community through increased partnerships with area civic and arts groups, youth organizations, choirs and artists.
