The San Antonio Chamber Choir is thrilled to announce their December 2022 concert series. On December 17 and 18 in collaboration with singers from the Children’s Chorus of San Antonio and local instrumentalists, SACC will present El Mesías. El Mesías is a Spanish translation of Handel’s treasured masterwork Messiah. A musical rite for the holiday season, this will be a premiere in San Antonio of this re-imagined work. Interspersed throughout the program will include traditional Mexican carols as well as Steven Sametz’s Los Pastores. The program will showcase the best professional singers from around the area as well as orchestral musicians that play with leading ensembles throughout the region. Richard Bjella, SACC Artistic Director will conduct the program and soloists will be featured from the choir membership. There will be two concert opportunities on Saturday, December 17 at 8pm and Sunday, December 18 at 3pm. Both concerts will be presented at the Immaculate Conception Memorial Chapel on the Oblate School of Theology campus (285 Oblate Dr, San Antonio, TX 78216). Tickets are $30 general admission and military or seniors can receive 25% off discounts which will be honored at the door for purchase.
