For Immediate Release | December 20, 2013
The Children’s Chorus of San Antonio announces the appointment of Dr. Doreen Rao as Interim Artistic Director for the 2014-2015 season, following the retirement of Founder and Artistic Director Marguerite McCormick at the end of May 2014. CCSA has focused on providing exceptional performance and education opportunities to the young people of San Antonio for 30 years and has been preparing for this transition for the past two years. Plans for Rao’s season with the organization include: opportunities for area music teachers and choral directors to work with and learn from Rao in a series of workshops and masterclasses; collaborations with YOSA, the San Antonio Symphony and other area performing arts organizations; and the opportunity for young artists from all walks and corners of San Antonio to experience Dr. Rao's spirited leadership style and innovative programming in community-wide events.
Executive Director Anne Schelleng noted, “We are thrilled to bring Dr. Rao to San Antonio and to create fantastic opportunities for our community to engage with this leader and visionary in the choral and music education field. From our youngest artists to our peers, colleagues and audiences, it is our goal to unite our community and to lift their lives through song.”
One of the most exciting things happening at CCSA is the newest addition to our community outreach. We now bring Music Together, free of charge to those that need us most: the children and families at Haven for Hope. Each week we watch and celebrate as music begins to touch their lives. We bear witness to the transformational experiences as parents discover a new relationship with their children and, even if only for those few moments, find peace and joy in sharing this new bond together through music.
Is the joy that comes from singing powerful? We think so! We know that one look at the faces of our littlest artists will convince you too. We invite you to support our initiative at Haven for Hope. Join us as we shape our future - one voice at a time.
