As a brand advocate, Louise Magruder has been developing the Houston Boychoir brand for the past 14 years. With a passion for arts as education, she discovered Houston Boychoir when her son auditioned for the group in 2nd grade. Since then, she has been contributing her skills as a Graphic Designer to the Boychoir developing the visual elements that support the Boychoir story.
A graduate of Fashion Institute of Technology in New York, Louise spent her early years supporting an art based public school in New York. While there she directed a program that produced a documentary film called "When Fried Eggs Fly." It chronicles a music experiment led by Bruce Mack and his 2nd and 3rd grade students and their parents as they embark on a project together and made its debut at Tribeca Film Festival. It can be seen on today on Youtube. After transplanting to Houston, Louise perfected her skills as a designer at corporations including Stanford Financial, Chevron and BHP. She now works freelance and supports several non-profits in addition to Houston Boychoir.
"As the world evolves it is important to help our children develop curiosity and critical thinking skills. Yes, Houston Boychoir provides an exemplary music education, but it offers so much more. It offers boys a chance to learn and grows. It offers them a safe space to be theirselves. It teaches them self-reliance and shows them the world beyond the confines of their neighborhoods. It gives them a chance to be successful."
I am grateful that we found Houston Boychoir and that my son, now pursuing a career in music was able to be part of this great organization.
