Important Announcements

April 30th, 2021

Hello Live Oak Singers & Friends,

A little over year ago COVID19 entered the scene and changed every facet of life. We are thankful for the opportunity to stay connected and keep moving forward as best we could utilizing technology. But, as we have all learned and experienced, nothing can replace the face to face interactions that we have all been missing, especially when it comes to creating music.

With the increase in vaccinations among our members, the low & steady risk levels in our city, and a mission to fulfill as an organization in building bridges through music, the Live Oak Singers are back in full swing at Woodlawn Pointe.

Beginning May 3rd in person rehearsals will recommence at Woodlawn Pointe in the main auditorium. Social distancing and masks will be required and other safety protocols may be implemented as well. Keep on the lookout for an email with additional details.

We are anticipating performing an in person concert this July and every rehearsal before then is important in making sure we sound as good as we possibly can. If you've missed out on our virtual rehearsals and would like to participate in our July concert, jump back in to regular rehearsals as soon as you can!

Below is a calendar of upcoming rehearsals and events, we look forward to seeing you there!

To: Live Oak Singers Chorus Members and Alumni


As discussed tonight during the virtual rehearsal announcements, after 8 years in San Antonio, and 7 active years with Live Oak Singers, I am planning on moving back to the Dallas area by the first of May to be closer to family. This decision took several years for me to make and comes with mixed emotions leaving behind the chorus that I love so much and have worked so hard for.


The past 7 years with Live Oak Singers have been the experience of a lifetime for me. The first 2.5 years working alongside of Ron Casola as the Assistant Artistic Director, and then the past 4.5 years, beginning in August of 2016, as your Artistic Director, has brought me much joy and memories that I will always cherish.

The LOS Board of Directors is working on a path forward and searching for an Artistic Director replacement. During the next 5 weeks I will remain leading the virtual rehearsals and helping with chorus concert planning, and transition of my responsibilities, and I will plan on coming back in person for the July concert.

I appreciate the love and support that each of you have provided the past 7 years. The chorus and each of you will always be in my thoughts and prayers, and each of you will be missed tremendously.


Much love and big hugs.



Ray Ray

Artistic Director, Live Oak Singers
