Children's Chorus of San Antonio

Fiesta 2015 officially ended on April 26, but the Children’s Chorus of San Antonio (CCSA) kept the bi-cultural celebration going at the Tobin Center for the Performing Arts on Sunday, May 3 at their “Fiesta In Song” concert. The program was made up of contemporary choral music of the Americas, including songs by Irving Berlin and Bill Withers, as well as Francisco Núñez and Ivo Antognini.

Youth Orchestras of San Antonio

The Tobin Center for the Performing Arts continues to roll out events. At mid-month it’s featuring Youth Orchestras of San Antonio. Here’s YOSA’s Music Director Troy Peters with the program's layout.

“A performance of "Peter and the Wolf," featuring YOSA and the Children’s Chorus of San Antonio. And we’ll surround that beloved family classic with a bunch of music exploring the cultural heritage of San Antonio,” he said.

Peters explained the reason for the wide program schedule in addition to "Peter and the Wolf."

There are some big changes happening at the Children’s Chorus of San Antonio. We'll get to that in a moment, but first, I talked to Artistic Director Marguerite McCormick about this Sunday’s event at Concordia Lutheran Church.

“Sunday’s performance is a big celebration. This is our 30th anniversary season and we have lots of wonderful choirs that are going to be singing in the concert as always," she said. "But we also have some wonderful alumni that are going to be in the audience and are going to come up and sing.”

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.
