On September 20, 2016, the San Antonio Tricentennial Commission announced the San Antonio Choral Society among 40 other community partners for the city's celebration, which is to be held in 2018. The announcement took place at the non-profit commission's new office in the Centro de Artes Building, found in Market Square.
The project proposal for the San Antonio Choral Society’s “Canta! A Celebration of San Antonio’s Cultural Mosiac" was approved by the Tricentennial events adjudication committee in June 2016. This performance will feature the world premier of San Antonio-based composer James Syler's El Camino de las Misiones, commissioned by the Choral Society specifically for the Tricentennial Celebration. All other details are closely guarded. The concert is tentatively scheduled to take place during the height of San Antonio's 300th birthday celebration in May 2018.
