San Antonio Mastersingers Set To Begin New Season

San Antonio Mastersingers

The San Antonio Mastersingers open next month celebrating their 70th season performing with the San Antonio Symphony with a performance of Symphonic Dances on Oct. 11 & 12 .

"We begin the season with the symphony performing 'Miriam's Song of Triumph' by Franz Schubert Oct. 11 and 12 at the Majestic, and then we quickly go into the holiday season," says Mastersinger and board member Chancey Blackburn. "We have four performances this year of Handel's 'Messiah' and we're also performing the Holiday Pops."

Blackburn thinks going to a performance can be a remarkable experience.

"You have to turn your cell phone off you have to be in the moment. And when the performances are underway there's a stillness and a quiet in the soul that makes the experience transcend the rush and bustle of everyday. You are transported by the beauty of the experience," he says.
