The 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!

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!).

    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.

    I would love to order a singing valentine for my husband, to be delivered on Friday, Feb. 12. He’s a teacher at Sherando High School in Stephens City, Va. Do you travel that far? Please let me know!

  8. Sherry says:

    Ms. Partington – if Mason Dixon does not wish to travel that far, please contact our Sweet Adelines chorus (Shenandoah Valley Chapter of SAI) for the Valentine. Not trying to take anything from M/D, just wanted to give you another option if they are not interested. We are out of Winchester VA, so are much closer to Sherando – 540-955-2851 / 703-966-4202 – and are doing Singing Valentines as well.
