About Pride

Pride of Baltimore Chorus performs under Sweet Adelines International Master Director Joe Cerutti, Jr., who joined the organization in 2009. Cerutti is respected in the women’s and men’s barbershop societies for his musical expertise, humor and achievements. A natural-­born educator, Cerutti coaches barbershop choruses and quartets around the world.

The Chorus strives for musical excellence through education, competition, and performance, competing regionally with its eye on qualifying to compete on the Sweet Adelines International stage. The chorus has represented Region 19 as champions or wildcard competitors at International Convention for almost two decades.

Pride of Baltimore Chorus is made up of scientists, stay-at-home moms, educators, musicians, doctors, and more who love to sing a cappella four-part harmony barbershop style. They travel from six mid-Atlantic states to sing with Pride of Baltimore Chorus every Monday night. Members value Pride’s supportive friendships, individual musical and personal growth, and sharing the joy of music!

Pride presents local, public performances and can be hired to perform at private functions. Guests are always welcome at rehearsal.
