The Bay Country Chorus is an all-male a cappella singing group that performs four-part harmony in the barbershop style. During 2018 and 2019 the chorus made 30 appearances throughout the mid shore.Eighteen of these performances were at senior living facilities and at venues dealing with clients who are in rehab or dealing with dementia. Many were at no cost to the recipients. We hope to bring a little sunshine to these very special citizens. For information on joining the chorus or in booking a performance please call 410-820-4761.
