"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."

We'd like to thank the many companies and organizations who advertised in our show program. Many of you have been with us for years and we deeply appreciate your continued support. We encourage all our chorus and audience members to check our sponsorship page and patronize these businesses and groups when the opportunity arises.
F.L.A.S.H. stands for Friendship, Laughter, and Singing Harmony. All were in ample supply in Hunt Valley, MD last weekend when this year's faculty, Kathy Carmody and Lynne Smith came to town. Several chorus members attended this year's classes. We wish our sister chorus, Harbor City Music Company, save travels to international competition in Honolulu, HI and much luck on stage. You make Region 19 proud!
