Some of Your Mastersingers
Finally - we are announcing plans to perform together again!
Dear Friends of the Mastersingers,
Difficult decisions were made this past year in the interest of the health and safety of our singers and you, our treasured audience. But we are excited to announce that we now see the light at the end of the tunnel and are gearing up to sing together again!
Here are some new dates to look forward to for the balance of 2021 and into 2022:
Auditions will be held August 21 and 28, 2021
Rehearsals resume September 7, 2021
Rescheduled annual Concert at the Basilica of the Little Flower, Sunday, November 14, 2021
Performance of Handel’s Messiah with the San Antonio Symphony at the Tobin, December 22, 23, 2021
Performance of Ravel's Daphnis et Chloe with the San Antonio Symphony at the Tobin, February 25 & 26, 2022
We have secured ‘singers’ masks’ for the chorus and are envisioning gathering later this spring to try them out. You will see these stylish masks, black with black-on-black treble clefs, at our next performances.
In additional news, our Chorus Manager, Bill Harrison, who served with distinction for 15 years, will make way for his replacement, David Uminski. David is a long-time chorus member, full time faculty at St. Philips College, a highly experienced Events Organizer and will enthusiastically become official on June 1, 2021.
In accordance with our By Laws, Board Chair, Marguerite McCormick, will rotate off after her two-year term, to be succeeded in June by Chancey Blackburn, a 10-year chorus veteran with extensive board experience in non-profit organizations.
Lifting our hearts to send you warm regards,
Dr. John Silantien, Music Director
Marguerite McCormick, Board Chair
