The San Antonio Choral Society serves an important and growing constituency in the San Antonio area. Members are given the opportunity to perform and participate in great choral works as well as collaborate with some of the finest musicians that the city has to offer. Audiences eagerly attend the high-quality performances and consistently offer rave reviews. As a music enthusiast, I especially appreciate the thoughtful programming and dedicated leadership by the executive staff. The San Antonio Choral Society brings together the best qualities of what it means to be in San Antonio.

I have been a member of SACS for over 23 years. Singing with this wonderful group has helped me get through some very trying times in my life. Not only is this organization artistically excellent but it is also nurturing and welcoming. In my mind, this combination can't be beat.

I have been a member of the San Antonio Choral Society for more than twenty years and am pleased to say SACS has evolved into a top-notch choral group, on a par with the Mastersingers, but with a more diverse repertoire. We have had some of the best artistic directors in the area, each with his/her exceptional ability to elicit from the singers their best performances.

SACS has performed musical selections of all genres, from Medieval airs to commissioned pieces by local composers. One of the goals of the group is to perform these concerts in venues throughout the San Antonio area. Our membership and audience constantly reflect the various ethnic groups which make up our unique San Antonio Character.

SACS continues to mentor high school and college students, allowing them to experience choral music beyond the classroom and to associate with veteran singers of varied age and ability.

I believe that the San Antonio Choral Society at present is the best-sounding, best-blended and most -dedicated group of singers since I joined SACS. Our current artistic director is no only a top-notch musician but a superb educator; hence the reason for the best chorus yet.

Sincerely,

Mary Ann Quick

I throughly enjoy Choral Society concerts! Their choices of music are great, and they perform with beautiful harmony, crisp, clean pronunciations, and superb musicality! Also, it's obvious that they really enjoying singing! That really does make a great difference in the sound! Having been a former member of the group, I know how enjoyable it is!
