Our Mission


The mission of the Treble Choir is to transform lives through excellence in choral singing and music education.


Our guiding principals are

• The love of music

• Self discipline and teamwork

• Self expression and self confidence

• Better understanding of the world,  the people and ourselves

• Only the best is good enough


Our goal is to be accessible to every child, thus the Treble Choir is the only choral organization outside the public school system that provides the highest quality TUITION-FREE music education.


History and Highlights.

The Treble Choir of Houston is a nurturing community of young women grade 6-12 that provides them with exceptional interpersonal and musical experiences.


Through Treble Choir projects participants from diverse cultural, educational and socio-economic backgrounds find their voices as singers, artists and women in a musical environment that empowers them.   Treble Choir was founded in 2006 by Marianna Parnas-Simpson and has flourished artistically since then.  The philosophy that only the best is good enough has been a constant guiding principle.


This choral ensemble performs widely in the community and also serves as the resident children’s choir at Christ Church Cathedral, Episcopcal.


Our repertoire is diverse, coming from many periods in the western classical tradition, sung in many languages, and also includes world music, jazz and Broadway selections.

Our mission is to help each singer realize her full potential as a person and a musician.  Self-esteem, confidence and leadership skills are cultivated through the environment of love, respect and support.
