Dave & Men Over Chord helped to make our event an evening to remember. Dave was very responsive and patient as we worked to finalize the details for our event. Men Over Chord exceeded my expectations. I still have guests commenting on how wonderful they were and how much it added to the evening. Thanks to Dave and the rest of the Quartet for making this a memorable evening for all those in attendance.
The chorus performs a diverse repertoire of American popular music, including Tin Pan Alley classics, pop standards, novelty songs, and seasonal favorites. We complement our singing with innovative staging, movement, and dialogue, to create a unique and memorable experience for our audiences. All of our music is arranged for four voice parts and sung a cappella (unaccompanied). The singers in our group come from various backgrounds, having sung in high school and college ensembles, madrigals, church choirs, opera, musical theater, and even heavy metal bands.
The Sons of the Severn name pays homage to the Severn River, which runs through Annapolis, the state capital of Maryland and home to the United States Naval Academy. The chorus represents the Anne Arundel County, Maryland Chapter of the Barbershop Harmony Society. Our chapter was founded in 1949, the third chapter to charter in the Society's Mid-Atlantic District.
There are curretnly three registered quartets belonging to the the Sons of the Severn: The Corner Four, Men Over Chord, and Splash of Lime. We are also fortunate to have Mainsail, a franchise quartet, that is available to perform at times when a smaller ensemble is more appropriate than the chorus. Please contact us for either the chorus or qiartet availability.
