Maryland Sings was founded in 1990, and incorporated in 1991. As a result of hard work and careful planning by the Director and his Executive Director, the organization has grown from five members in 1990 to thirty-two members in three ensembles. During the past 5 years, the organization's visibility has grown and requests for performances have increased dramatically. The organization has an Executive Board and a Board of Trustees which handles bookings, grant legal issues, grant applications and marketing.
Maryland Sings, Inc. earned an international reputation in 1992 and 1994 due to the success of two European tours that include the Cole Porter Festival in Chamonix, France, and performing at the Montreaux Jazz Festival in Montreaux, Switzerland, as well as concertizing at various cathedrals, parks, and hotels throughout France, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Holland, Venice and England.
The Senior Ensemble has traveled across Maryland with their acclaimed 100 Years of Broadway musical to raise money to help the State Board of Education purchase over 50,000 books for less fortunate children throughout Maryland. The director and one of the singers have rewritten the State Song and performed the Maryland Song in the George Washington Chambers at the State House for the Maryland Senate on Monday, February 18, 2002.
The organization has an action team of leaders, who handle day to day operations, grant applications, some booking, and marketing. The Executive Director, General Manager and Music Director/Founder, are the Executive Board who manage the overall program.
