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 50 singers of all ages and walks of life who come from San Antonio and the 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 Valentine's 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 a cappella 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 then move on to the International Contest.
International competitions are held in various cities throughout the US. Alamo Metro has competed in numerous International competitions and placed as high as top 10 in the world for large choruses. In 2014, we competed in the midsize division, Harmony Classic, in Baltimore and placed 4th in the world!
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 several quartets, and we are very proud of them! Click here to see our quartets and learn more about them!
Alamo Metro Chorus is a chapter of Sweet Adelines International, a worldwide non-profit organization of nearly 23,000 members in choruses and quartets. Sweet Adelines International is a highly respected organization of women singers committed to advancing the musical art form of barbershop harmony through education and performance.
