A Cappella Journey

A Cappella Journey

The members of ACJ believe life is a journey and singing barbershop together has been their A Cappella Journey since 2017. This group of business professionals has chosen not to compete as a quartet but remain dedicated to providing high-quality barbershop entertainment. They attend coaching sessions, enjoy live shows, and try to sing as often as possible. 

 

Performances include the Havre de Grace Candlelight Christmas Tour and singing the National Anthem at charity golf events at MD Golf and Country Club and for the Aberdeen IronBirds baseball team. They also sing at the Chesapeake Cancer Alliance kickoff event for the Festival of Trees, and of course, performances with Upper Chesapeake Chorus.
