September 29, 2016 -

“It is impossible, in our condition of Society, not to be sometimes a Snob.” William Makepeace Thackeray Recently, I’ve become aware I am being referred to as Highfalutin, an Elitist, and a Snob. All those things are, apparently, bad things. In my own work, I suppose I am a bit

Kenneth Potter160 boys. Poor baby I feel so sorry for you. I'd take maybe 140 of them off your hands. How many do you really need?

David DillardKen....it is so great to see young men wanting to be involved in a musical group. I have worked with the Atlanta Boy Choir and find it so rewarding to work and see them grow musically, mentally and spirituality. I know you must be very proud of them!

David DonathanHi Ken. I have about 70 robes like these you can have. A few clarifications: they are adult sizes, but some are for smaller adults, and they have the cathedral length surplice, not the shorter ones you have. We bought new ones 2 years ago. They are in pretty good shape, royal blue, 100% poly, cotton/poly surplice, in 2 boxes ready to ship. They could easily be altered. Message me.

About SACS

Executive Director: Douglas McCarroll / Artistic Director: Dr. Jennifer Seighman

Established in 1965 by Gwilym H. Isaac, the San Antonio Choral Society began as a community choir, with only a handful of singers, as a means to join with others who share the same passion for choral music and strive for excellence in performance. SACS has since grown to an 80+, mixed-voice performing ensemble open to talented men and women from all walks of life. Since the original charter was drafted, our established purpose “of performing sacred and secular choral works for the pleasure of and cultural well being of the community” continues to be the basic tenet by which SACS operates today.
