Although this weekend is “quiet” from a contest perspective, MBHA is pleased to report that several BHS District Contests AND Harmony, Inc., Area Contests have hosted mixed quartets and choruses this spring, and there are a few more to come (see calendar below)!
Here’s the shameless plug: MBHA is the North American association for mixed harmony singers. If you are interested in forming a mixed voice quartet or chorus, or finding out more about opportunities, repertoire, or anything else, please visit our website at www.mixedbarbershop.org. You will find information on membership, education, and competition, as well as a new section on Frequently Asked Questions. Our Contact Us tab will put you in touch with knowledgeable people in this organization who can answer any specific questions you may have, and guide you in your efforts to become a mixed barbershop singer!!
In addition, go to our blog on the home page (right hand sidebar under “Recent Posts”) to see just how many mixed quartets and choruses are bringing mixed barbershop to contests this Spring. Visit their facebook or web pages through the embedded links to learn more about them!
We encourage all mixed quartets and choruses 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! Click Membership for more information.
