About The Sandlapper Singers
The Sandlapper Singers, South Carolina’s premier professional chorus, has presented American music in a uniquely entertaining and engaging style since 1996. The 30-voice auditioned ensemble is currently in its nineteenth season, performing an annual subscription series in the Columbia area. The Singers also presents additional performances each year in communities across the state of South Carolina and the Southeast. The group is directed and conducted by founder Dr. Lillian Quackenbush, retired chairman of the Columbia College music department and recipient of the 2012 Elizabeth O’Neill Verner Governor’s Award for Life Time Achievement in the Arts, sponsored by the Arts Commission. The Singers focus on the works of American composers past and present, a departure from the usual programming of European choral literature, offering a delightful mix of both familiar and new musical sounds. Our educational efforts are strongly supported: the Young Sandlapper Singers; the Katie Q Vocal Scholarship; and our Side-By-Side program for high school choral ensembles, the next generation of Sandlapper Singers!
