The Marcsmen are San Antonio’s premier men’s a cappella group, and members of the Barbershop Harmony Society. The group was formed by a number of Texas State University music students, and won the inaugural Barbershop Harmony Society Youth Chorus Contest in 2008. Since becoming a full-fledged chapter of the BHS, we won the 2012 Southwestern District championship and are the current Southwestern District runners-up. We also represented the District in the 2018 International Competition in Orlando, Florida, finishing 13th overall to the eventual International champions (who happen to hail from our District), the Vocal Majority.
We also competed at International in 2011, 2013 and 2015, and in 2013, we also placed 13th overall in the world, the highest International finish in Barbershop Harmony Society history for a group of less than 29 men on stage.
2014 SW District Chorus Contest
Our rehearsals are every Thursday evening from 7:00-10:00 PM at the fine facilities of Cornerstone Christian Schools in north-central San Antonio just outside of Loop 1604. Our music team, led by Director Brent Dunavant and Associate Director Wallace Stanley, work with the group every week to deliver a unique musical style, which we refer to as The Marcsmen Sound. We put that sound on stage many times throughout the year in concerts, singing for civic and charitable organizations, private groups, churches, community events, and fundraisers.
We love to entertain by putting on our own musical events each year for the community, our friends, and families. We send “singing telegrams” on Valentines Day and special occasions, and in an effort to stay committed to singing and performing at the highest level possible, we compete each year in the pre-eminent men’s barbershop competition in the world.
