Children's Chorus Of San Antonio Starts New Season
Children's Chorus of San Antonio Founding and Artistic Director Marguerite McCormick said there’s a lot coming your way this season from the chorus. Here’s her snapshot of the first half of the season:
"We’re starting with the alumni recital November 4 featuring four of our alumni who are now professional singers," McCormick said. "They will be accompanied by collaborative pianist Kristin Roach. Following that, there are two free concerts in town for our Harlandale Project Sing activities—this is one of our outreach programs.
"On November 23 the candlelight celebration at St.Mark’s Episcopal featuring our advanced elite choirs. Opening the season and premiering a commissioned work. And then December 8th at 2:30 in the afternoon, at St. Mark’s the Evangelist Catholic Church, the Winter Magic Concert, which features all seven of the choirs."
McCormick said she thinks there is plenty of reason to encourage kids to sing, even reasons that have nothing to do with singing.
"The participation in a program like this develops a child, not only musically and artistically, but also develops their character, their leadership," she said.
As to why people should go out of their way to come to a concert, Ms. McCormick puts it this way.
"There is nothing like a live performance of music, happening in the moment. It does something to your spirit."
