Formed in 1991, the Deltones are one of the University of Delaware’s outstanding co-ed a cappella groups. In 2011, the group appeared on television in the third season of NBC’s “The Sing-Off.” Their motto is “Friends first, singers second.” They love taking road trips to visit a cappella groups at other schools, and inviting groups to perform with them at the University of Delaware. Their 14 current members are gearing up for the group’s 25th Anniversary Concert this spring.
Founded in 2008, Supreme Chord is a group of young professionals who live and work in Maryland, DC, and Virginia, who love to make beautiful a cappella music — but just as importantly, enjoy spending time with each other doing it. They pride themselves on the quality — and range — of their repertoire, with everything from Darius Rucker to Lorde, from the Indigo Girls to Metallica. The group has performed widely at venues throughout the DC area, from the Kennedy Center in DC to Jammin’ Java in Vienna to Brookside Gardens in Maryland — and are always looking for new opportunities: new music, new gigs, new members — and, of course, new fans!
Five O’Clock Shadow, Georgetown Day School’s all-male a cappella group, is a world-renowned ensemble of singing gentlemen. They have previously sung on the streets of DC, at GDS events, at a cat show, and at area concerts, dinner parties, and competitions. Their repertoire ranges from classic barbershop to modern pop, often with a twist of schtick and even humor. Recent repertoire included Goodnight Sweetheart, Moondance, I Kissed a Girl, Afternoon Delight, and a host of other fun songs.

Metropolitan House: Metropolitan Church operates two residential housing programs – Metropolitan House located in the Metropolitan Memorial building and St. Luke’s House located at the St. Luke’s Mission Center on Calvert Street. Both provide shelter to homeless individuals who are working with Friendship Place’s AimHire program. St. Luke’s House and Metropolitan House were two of the first shelters to open in upper Northwest DC, and over the past twenty-five years they have provided safe, stable, and secure living environments that have empowered hundreds and hundreds of men to move beyond homelessness toward self-sufficiency, employment, and permanent housing. In 2015, Metropolitan House shifted its focus from serving men and now houses women. Both programs emphasize independent living and have expanded from the older night-shelter model of “in- by- 7am-out-by- 7pm” to offer residents 24-hour-a-day access. This accommodates the varied schedules of those who are working or seeking employment. For more information call 202-363-4900 or visit www.nationalchurch.org.
