    The University of Maryland Eastern Shore Concert Choir consists of a unique group of students who represent many academic disciplines.  They have established a reputation of being excellent ambassadors for the University. The choir performs all forms of choral literature, both sacred and secular, many times during the year at universities; academies, public, private and parochial schools; and churches of various denominations.  In Continental United States, their travels have taken them to Virginia, Delaware, Maryland, (to include a performance in Annapolis for the Maryland Black Caucus), Florida, North Carolina, Washington, D.C. (a performance at the Washington National Cathedral), Pennsylvania and New York, including a performance at the United Nations "Zeus Area."  They have also performed on the Island of Oahu in Hawaii.  Internationally, they have toured Trinidad, West Indies; London, England; Virgin Islands, Montego Bay, Jamaica; Nassau, Bahamas; Paris, France; Frankfurt, Germany and Barbados, West Indies and Guadeloupe, French West Indies.  The 40-member ensemble represents 12 academic disciplines, students of all classifications (freshmen-seniors), 6 states and 3 foreign countries.  Choir performances epitomize the axiom "the whole is greater than the sum of its parts" and consistent with the university president's mantra, the choir continuously strives to move from excellence to eminence.
