The chapter is host to several quartets, many of which are available to sing at your next event.

3 Wise Men

3 Wise Men QuartetFormed in 2005, 3 Wise Men (3WM) have competed in Division and Novice quartet competitions and have sung at local events including Baltimore Artscape and Flag Day at Fort McHenry. They were thrilled to appear as the famous "School Board" quartet in two productions of The Music Man - a three-month run with the Oregon Ridge Dinner Theatre and then with a full orchestra and choir at Maryland Live Arts.

They are currently working toward their goal of singing the National Anthem at all of the MLB parks, with 2 down and many to go.

Check out their appearance schedule on the 3 Wise Men web site or visit 3 Wise Men Quartet on Facebook for the latest news.

Ear Candy

Ear CandyEar Candy is a registered barbershop quartet from the Heart of Maryland Chorus and Atlantic Harmony Brigade. The quartet consists of four experienced singers who came together in the summer of 2013 in order to enter the first Patapsco Valley Chapter Quartet Contest, which they won that September (after a long 5 min rehearsal in the parking lot!). Ear Candy consists of three baritones (George Korch, Ben Hawker and Glenn Phillips), who ‘fight’ over the top three quartet voice parts, along with bass Larry Klein. They competed in the 2014 Western Division contest of the Barbershop Harmony Society’s Mid-Atlantic District, and, despite limited rehearsal opportunities, placed higher than expected. In 2015 they competed at Western Division again with similar short rehearsal schedule and improved their score to a 65.3. Ear Candy had the privilege of being selected as the opening act for O.C. Times on the AHB annual show in August 2014.
