Christopher McGuire / Allegro Trio, Classical Guitarists
American guitarist Christopher McGuire commands the many expressive qualities of the guitar with what one critic called “unselfconscious intensity.” His engaging performance style invites people of all ages to feel they are taking part, not just taking a seat. Audiences and critics on five continents fulfill the prediction by Andrés Segovia that “…he will be appreciated and applauded everywhere.” In his 1981 letter of recommendation, Segovia also said he is “…an artist, sensitive, with perfect technique.” His direct influences are as varied as they come, ranging from private lessons with Maestro Segovia to jam sessions with Stevie Ray Vaughn.* Has preformed with some of the great musicians of our time, including Charlie Byrd, Carlos Barbosa-Lima, Bucky Pizzarelli, Howard Alden, Roland Dyens, Carlos Bonell, Karin Schaupp, Robert Guthrie, Van Cliburn Gold Medalist José Feghali and violinist Swang Lin. In October of 2005 Chris shared the stage with the legendary Van Cliburn in a tribute concert for Fort Worth philanthropist Roz Rosenthal. He is currently Artistic Director of the Fort Worth Classic Guitar Society (FWCGS) and the Allegro Guitar Society of Dallas (AGSD).

Saxophone

While his astonishing virtuosity thrills listeners, his artistry reaches far beyond this demonstrating a unique personality and musical voice. Critics have described him as "just as much fun to watch as to listen to" (Dallas Morning News) and "ready to cultivate the masses" (Chicago Tribune).

The Marksmen
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.

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.
