Ava Pine, Soprano
2011 Grammy Nominee
Praised by audiences and critics alike for her “sheer vocal beauty, ease and eloquence” and “rewarding musicianship,” excels in music ranging from Baroque to Contemporary. She draws from a rich well of experience in both classical music and the theatrical stage, which she uses to maximum effect to communicate with her audiences, whether singing opera, oratorio, or giving ...a recital. In her role debut as Pamina with Florentine Opera, she was praised as the production’s “vocal queen … who sang and acted Pamina with heartbreaking, honeyed sweetness. Her big voice reads as beautiful not only because of its richness, but because she conceals all effort and gets the meaning of the word legato.”

Doug Montgomery
Pianist
For over thirty years, music lovers around the world have agreed with the Chicago Sun Times, “There is only one Doug Montgomery.” His unforgettable live performances and his numerous versatile recordings reveal the vast talent of this world-class musician and his repeat engagements at some of the country’s premier private and corporate events proves the appeal is surely the music but also the man himself. In fifth grade he walked through the doors of his first music class and entered a whole new world. Recalling, the experience, Doug claims he can still smell the ink on the copies containing the song the teacher passed out that day.

The Marcsmen
San Antonio’s Premier Men’s A Cappella Group

We consider The Marcsmen to be a musical brotherhood. Sure, we love to sing and strive to make each other the best musicians we can be, but at the same time, we love to socialize. Whether it’s playing basketball, going out to dinner after rehearsal and singing tags in the parking lot until the wee hours or the morning, or ribbing each other in our discussion groups, we have fun together. Of course, that extends to all of our families as well, whom we consider to be just as much a part of the group as the actual members. Our members come from all walks of life at a variety of ages as young as 13 and as old as in their 70’s, from all parts of the South Texas region.
