2023 Nationals Game

Our 2023 performance of the Star Spangled Banner was in center field of Nationals Park, before the Washington Nationals took on the Miami Marlins in September. We were thrilled to have guests singing with us from three other local chapters!

Wardensville Lions Club Show

This month we traveled out to West Virginia to do a show for the Wardensville Lions Club.






In addition to the chorus, our chapter quartet, the Capital Classics and our director John David Maybury’s quartet, Surprisingly Competent, performed.

Our Latest Brooke Grove Performance

At the end of July, the chorus returned to the Brooke Grove Nursing and Rehabilitation Center for another performance. We sang for the residents back in December and we were asked to come back again this summer.




In addition to a full package of chorus songs, Bob Hirsh used a quartet to explain and demonstrate how barbershop four part harmony works. Plus the Capital Classics, one of our chapter quartets stepped out and sang a couple of songs.
