Two Great Events This Week

Who says that summer is a time for relaxing? Our performance calendar is filling up fast. First up, the Son's of the Severn NCEON Benefit Show this Sunday. This performance is drawing choruses and quartets from around the area to support the North County Emergency Outreach Network. The show starts at 7pm at the Chesapeake Arts Center. Admission is free with the donation of a canned food item.

We are also presenting a free concert at Westview Park in Catonsville this Thursday, July 2nd, starting at 7:30pm. Bring a lawn chair and a cold drink and enjoy a cappella harmony in the great outdoors. The park is at Gilston Park Road and Chesworth Road, just off of Rolling Road.

Video from Flag Day

There's a video from the Flag Day Performance on YouTube. We had a perfect day - excellent weather, a big crowd, and lot of guys from our chorus and the Chorus of the Chesapeake. 3 Wise Men debuted a new song to demonstrate the barbershop quartet sound and the chorus brought out it's new song, God Bless the USA. We wrapped it up with the salute to the armed services, complete with the color guards from the different service branches. Throw in some free fireworks and you have a perfect evening in Baltimore. We're looking forward to next year already.

Flag Day

We are going to let you in on one of the best kept secrets in Baltimore. Everyone thinks of July Fourth for fireworks, but there's a great show happening downtown a month earlier. Every year, Fort McHenry celebrates Flag Day with singers, bands, a flyover, and a great fireworks show over the harbor. This is a free event, but without the huge crowds of the Fourth.

Come see the Heart of Maryland this year at the Flag Day celebration. We'll be joined by the Chorus of the Chesapeake to sing patriotic songs at the birthplace of the Star Spangled Banner.

The event starts at 6pm and concludes at nightfall with the military band and the fireworks. Bring a picnic dinner or purchase food at the event. More details are on our web site.
