The Pride of Baltimore Chorus was organized in February of 1993 by women seeking to perfect their abilities singing music in the barbershop style. Winning numerous regional awards since 1995, the chorus won 6th place in 1999 at the 2000 Sweet Adelines International Competition in Atlanta, Georgia. In October 2001, the chorus proudly placed 3rd at the 2002 International Competition in Portland, Oregon. And recently they were named 2004 2nd Place International Finalists! Under the talented leadership of Master Director Janet Ashford, the chorus has grown to about 80 voices. 14 spirited songs, from "Chordbuster's March," "My Honey's Lovin' Arms" and "(Here Am I) Brokenhearted," to Phil Collins' "Trashin' The Camp (with Chorus-supplied percussion)," "Big Bad Bill (Is Sweet William Now)," "Opus One," Lennon and McCartney's "In My Life" and "It's A Good Day" --The energy level, and breathtaking chords, stay high throughout. That's Entertainment! Recommended.
