Houston Chamber Choir's annual The Wondrous Gift is Given: Christmas at the Villa features five holiday concerts this season during the weekend of Dec. 7-9. The professional male and female singers will perform beloved carols in the beautiful Chapel of the Villa de Matel. Joining them for the matinee performances is the Treble Choir of Houston at Christ Church Cathedral, an all-female student choir. And joining for the evening performances is the Apollo Chamber Players, a talented Houston-based string quartet.
In the spirit of the holidays, the Houston Chamber Choir asks patrons to bring items to donate to The Beacon, a nonprofit in downtown Houston that works to end homelessness and restore hope. Needed are disposable razors, new socks, toiletries, medical scrubs and bath towels.
