ANGLICAN CHORAL TRADITION ON THE GULF COAST

For over thirteen years, Houston, Texas has been the home of the RSCM Gulf Coast Course for girls and adults. At RSCM Gulf Coast, our aim is to pass on the beautiful tradition of sacred Anglican choral music to the next generation while also celebrating diversity in our choristers and staff. Our choristers come from all over the United States, from different churches, denominations, and backgrounds. We love that we are an Anglican choral camp hosted by a Methodist church, housed in a Catholic university, and have sung services in Episcopal, Lutheran, and Baptist churches (just to name a few!). We've had esteemed clinicians such as Gerre Hancock, Benjamin Hutto, Bruce Neswick, and many more. In 2018 we had our first artist-in-residence, composer Philip Moore from England, and over the years we've been blessed to work with some of the most talented organists and musicians in the world.

The 2020 summer course will be the fifteenth year RSCM Gulf Coast has been in Houston, and we are so excited for another week of music, fun, and friendship. This year's clinician will be Bruce Neswick, Director of Music at Trinity Episcopal Cathedral in Portland, Oregon.

In addition to our summer course for girls, we have a Winter Festival in January open to both girls and boys.

Organ Scholar Position

The RSCM Gulf Coast is proud to have an organ scholar program that provides valuable training in Anglican music for young organists all over the country. In the past, we've had talented young musicians from notable musical institutions such as the Curtis Institute of Music, Eastman School of Music, Westminster Choir College, the University of Maryland, Rice University Shepherd School of Music and many others.
