MBHA is pleased to report that several BHS District Contests AND Harmony, Inc., Area Contests are hosting mixed quartets and choruses this spring! Many of these contests have already happened, and this coming weekend (April 27-28), we can look forward to two more contests! We encourage all competing mixed quartets to consider joining MBHA (if you haven’t already done so), even if your District doesn’t REQUIRE you to do so! There are many advantages to being a MBHA member! See our Membership tab above for more information.
HARMONY, INC. AREA 2 CONTEST: April 26-29, 2018 in Devens, MA.
