Now in its 60th year, the Mason-Dixon Chorus is a member of Barbershop Harmony Society (BHS), the largest singing organization in the world, with more than 24,000 men comprising 800 chapters in North America. Its music is sung a cappella (without accompaniment) in close, four-part harmony. We give several concerts a year and numerous other singouts at various community functions.

Billbd art3-152002-01-01 12.01.59The all-male chorus, with members ranging in age from 13-90, is the local chapter of the Barbershop Harmony Society, the largest singing organization in North America. We sing a cappella (without accompaniment) in close, four-part harmony.
Last November we presented “All Aboard,” a show reflecting on the Hub City tradition, and gave our profits, $3,000, to the Doey’s House project of the Hospice.
This winter we have sung in eight local schools as we look to inspire the students, particularly as a role model for young men, to “keep the whole world singing.”
We would like some funds to help purchase music and supplies to boost our education efforts with young people.
We would also like to do more community singouts for groups in settings where they may not be able to pay us. So if an individual on Washington County Gives donates the average $200 chorus singout fee, we could sing for a less-fortunate individual or group who needs to be encouraged by our voices of cheer.
We could also use funds for a portable but powerful sound system, and new uniforms.
Thank you for supporting our uniquely American art form of barbershop singing through Washington County Gives!


This year’s program “All Aboard”¬†was presented on November 8th.

Here’s a sample of that harmony in the form of a “tag,” which is typically the “juiciest” last few measures of a song – in traditional Barbershop style. (These four are at a Harmony College get together, one of many events nationwide that teach and display barbershop harmony. It’s a “pickup” quartet but each part is represented. If you look closely at the medallions around the necks, at least two of them are International Champions from different quartets!).

    Harmony Along the Potomac Chorus is up and running again. We are small but
    singing well. Please keep us in mind if you do a Christmas program again.

    Hi. I am the manager of Hagerstown Senior Center. I was wondering if your quartet could preform for our seniors on Dec. 18, 2014 @ 2:00pm. Alvin Kaylor is a member of our senior center.

    Please let me know if this would work out for you.

    Now, if you are looking for such a brand, you should
    consider the Bourne shoes. Thread and stitching – thread used in stitching is always the
    same as the colour of the leather. Toe Size: The right shoe will not only fit well
    but will also be flexible in the toe area, with enough space for your feet
    to relax, without being pinched in very tight.
