About The Chorus
In February 2014 a task force was formed to create a new LGBT and Friends mixed (four part harmony) chorus. After several meetings we began rehearsing in May.
We performed for various local organizations within the first few months with the intention of building bridges between all communities.
We had our first concert on December 13th and 14th, 2014 at Madison Square Presbyterian Church and our "Twisted Family Holiday" concert was a smashing success. Shortly after we collaborated with the Capital City Men's Chorus in Austin for a joint concert.
We continue our mission of building bridges through music throughout San Antonio and South Texas.
Live Oak Singers
History Behind the Name
During the first steering committee meeting, the members were sitting outside at a local park.
They discussed many names but nothing seemed quite right. One of the committee members suggested "Live Oak Singers" since they were all sitting under an oak tree.
The symbolism of the Live Oak Tree:
strong roots (volunteers and donors)
supportive trunk (leadership and members)
branches (outreach to various communities)
leaves (our patrons and external supporters)
An oak tree is a perfect illustration of strength, growth, and support.
The mission of the Live Oak Singers, Inc., A Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender (LGBTQ) and friends chorus in San Antonio, is to serve the community through philanthropy, outreach, and musical performance.
