UCC proudly participated in the Parade of Flags on November 4th, part of the opening ceremony for the 2014 SAI convention and competition held in Baltimore, MD. The flag featuring the famous Maryland blue crab was carried by charter member Beth Rupert and Alice Bingel from UCC. Our chorus represented Region 19 in this event, coming in 22nd out of 33 choruses with a score of 1200 points.

Upper Chesapeake started International Week with a rehearsal at our Aberdeen rehearsal hall tonight! Then we're down the road to Baltimore to join thousands or our Sweet Adeline sisters for our annual convention! Special good luck wishes go out to Lustre, GQ, and Harmony Classic mic testers, Harbor City Music Company! “Music is the language of the spirit. It opens the secret of life bringing peace, abolishing strife.”
"You're young, you're scrappy. You want to be the best. You started singing in school, like everyone: choir, maybe a couple musicals. Karaoke with some friends, talent shows. Then some collegiate a cappella.
But you don't want to just be fine. That's not enough. You want to be great. You want technique, you want moves. You need to learn karate... except contemporary a cappella doesn't have a traditional refined martial art... does it?
It does. It's called Barbershop."
