A Message from our President
The LOS board of directors continues our mission to serve the San Antonio community through philanthropy, outreach, and musical performance. We hope the playful themes of our various performances will delight you while also fulfilling your need for quality music.
This New Year may we all embrace those in our lives who contribute so much to us. Unfortunately, many people in the LGBTQ community have experienced rejection from those closest to them, to include family and friends. This is when many turn to a “Family of Choice”, where they find acceptance rather than rejection.
I am so very thankful to our late founding Artistic Director, Ron Casola; that I am able to continue to call the Live Oak Singers a huge part of my “Family of Choice”!
It's comforting in a very real way, but can also be jarring. In the real world, not everyone is going to get you, not everyone is going to understand or even tolerate your sexuality or gender identity. After being around people so accepting and caring, going back to your previous life is quite a juxtaposition, because sometimes you forget that not everyone is as wonderful as your chosen family. During this New Year and always, it is important that we support each other.
"We, as gay people, we get to choose our family and the people we're around" -- RuPaul Charles
