About Alamo Metro Chorus
Alamo Metro Chorus is a membership organization of female singers, who meet regularly to practice, perform, socialize, and have fun. We currently have over 70 singers of all ages, all walks of life, and all parts of the San Antonio and surrounding areas.
Alamo Metro Chorus loves to get out and sing for our community. We sing at annual shows, a number of community events, and we compete at the Regional and International levels. We also perform Singing Telegrams around Valentines Day and Mother's Day, or for any other special occasion. We are available to sing at your next function or event. If you're looking for a unique musical experience to liven up your event, please check out our Hire Us section.
In addition to sharing our music with others, another great passion of ours is learning more about the art of acapella singing. Vocal instruction is a regular part of chorus rehearsals, and a very important component of the chorus experience. Several times a year, we get coaching from a visiting master in the art of barbershop, where we learn many fabulous tricks of the trade.
In the spring of every year, Alamo Metro Chorus participates in the Region 10 chorus competition in Houston, Texas. Competitions are a special time for quartets and choruses from our region to come together to sing for each other, and get some constructive feedback from a panel of judges. The winners of the regional competition in both quartet and chorus categories get to travel to International Competition, which is held in the fall in a city selected each year. Alamo Metro Chorus won the 2009 Region 10 Competition in Houston, and we competed in Seattle, WA, in October 2010. In 2011, we again won our Region 10 Competition in Houston, and we are preparing for International Competition in Denver, CO, in the fall of 2012.
Most choruses have a number of members who form their own vocal quartets in addition to singing with the chorus. Alamo Metro Chorus currently is home to 5 quartets, and we are very proud of them! Click here to see our quartet section to learn more about them.
