Who We Are
The Houston Horizon Chorus is an award-winning chorus that has been providing uniquely entertaining performances throughout the Houston area since 1981. We are a non-profit organization dedicated to the education of women in the art of singing four-part harmony, barbershop style.
Houston Horizon is a premier chapter of Sweet Adelines International, a women's musical organization made up of over 33,000 voices across the nation and around the world. Sweet Adelines has a membership that represents 11 different countries, 750 choruses, and 1200 quartets.
We are a part of The Great Gulf Coast Region 10, which includes many areas of Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama, representing these cities: Houston, Austin, San Antonio, Dallas, Ft. Worth, Temple, Richmond, Livingston, Angleton, Lindale, Irving, McAllen, San Angelo, Humble, Corpus Christi, Beaumont, Baton Rouge, Lafayette, Monroe, Ruston, New Orleans, and Mobile. Houston Horizon is a group of over 75 vocally talented women.
The Houston Horizon Chorus competed at the Sweet Adelines International Competition in New Orleans in September 2019. We are under the direction of Janet Burnett. Houston Horizon continues to grow and strive for excellence, while gaining the knowledge and experience to provide our audiences with quality entertainment at a professional level. We are proud of our membership!
We are not professional singers, but homemakers, teachers, volunteers, accountants, secretaries, computer technologists, nurses, doctors, and much more! We come together one night a week to share in the joy of singing with friends. The friends you will make in the chorus are friends you'll have for life. And not just here in Houston. We have friends all over the world singing in other choruses that we see at our Regional and International conventions. Being a Sweet Adeline is truly a hobby we have come to love and cherish.
