The lights dimmed low with candles on paper-covered tabletops as six local musical groups took over the transformed sanctuary of Central Presbyterian Church in Towson.

They began with 8 boys in the 4th grade at Guilford Elementary and Middle School and have added 8-10 boys in each subsequent 4th grade class every year while continuing the after school program with the previous years students.
