Who we are

Houston Camerata is a Texas-based ensemble, founded in 2012 by conductor Paulo Gomes.


Camerata is an Italian word that refers to a group of individuals who enjoy similar interests and share a strong passion for a particular art form. This is a perfect description of our group because the singers are volunteers who come from all walks of life. Their common bond is that they share a passion for music and a talent for its performance.


To each concert, Houston Camerata will share with our audience music that is culturally diverse by performing folk as well as classical music, enlightening the public with our multi-cultural repertoire.

Our mission

Houston Camerata is dedicated to bring together those who love to sing with those who love to hear beautiful music, joyously embracing exceptional and interesting music through our performance of the choral repertoire of varied cultures and regions.
