The Copperleaf Quintet is set to close out its season on Sunday. As they've been all season, this concert is thematic.

"May 4 actually happens to be the feast of the forty English martyrs," said Ruth Moreland, the group's founder and artistic director.

"So we’ll do a concert of all English composers," she said. "The first portion of the concert is William Byrd, Thomas Tallis, just some really lovely liturgical motets. Some things in Latin, some things in English. And then the second half will be various pieces of English poetry set to music."

The San Antonio Mastersingers have something special planned next month. The 120-member chorus is going to sing at one of San Antonio’s landmark buildings.

"For the 11th year in a row we’re going to be performing at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Little Flower, which is the only papal throne in San Antonio. So, should the Pope come to visit, that would be where he would speak," said Chancey Blackburn, who sings with, and is a board member of the Mastersingers.

Voci di Sorelle, an all-women San Antonio singing group, is taking their show to the hill country.

“There are currently nine singers. It’s all a capella music," said founder Ruth Moreland. "We’ve been doing concerts all across Texas for the last ten years.”

Voci di Sorelle performs a lot in San Antonio, but Sunday, March 13 30, their free 3 p.m. performance is in Hunt, TX, which is west of Kerrville.

You’ve probably heard of San Antonio’s Copperleaf Quintet. Their soaring, pulled-from-a-different-era vocals have been heard locally in churches, museums and performance halls for the past four years. Now they have a pair of performances coming up.

“This upcoming concert this Sunday is actually part of the Music for St. Marks Series, which, that series is in its 22nd year," said Copperleaf Quintet’s Executive Director Ruth Moreland.

A local singing ensemble has an artful and interesting way of doing what they do. They're the The Copperleaf Quintet and they perform vocal chamber music in stunning settings.

"We gave two gallery concerts at the San Antonio Museum of Art," said Copperleaf Quintet’s Executive Director Ruth Moreland.

This Tuesday night, March 4, they’ll be singing in a small gallery named in honor of the priest who established Mission San Jose. Moreland detailed he music they’ll be singing:
