EVERYONE IN HARMONY! By now you have undoubtedly heard the latest from BHS Leadership: http://www.barbershop.org/everyoneinharmony/ Here are some excerpts from the BHS statement (full text in the link above) that we feel are directly relevant to the beliefs and mission of the MBHA: “Effective immediately, membership in the Barbershop Harmony Society is open to EVERYONE. […]
MBHA is pleased to report that several BHS District Contests AND Harmony, Inc., Area Contests have hosted mixed quartets and choruses this spring! We are so grateful to the many Districts (BHS) and Areas (HI) that have welcomed mixed quartets and choruses to their conventions and contests, and we know that there will be more to come in the fall and beyond!!
This coming weekend (June 7-10), we can look forward to Harmony, Inc.’s Area 4 contest! 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 4 CONTEST: June 7 -10, 2018 in Bloomington, IL. This convention promises to be a weekend of classes, contests, and fun! The events will be held at the Normal West High School. Further information about this contest weekend may be found here, including details about convention hotels, schedules, and tickets.
Now that we are all headed for summer, also take note of the following:
BHS INTERNATIONAL CONVENTION — July 1-8, 2018 in Orlando, FL. Mixed barbershop will certainly be present at this event! There will be an “Everyone In Harmony” Chorus, and a Mixed Barbershop Showcase (sponsored by MBHA) with FREE ADMISSION on Friday, July 6 from 9:30 pm to 1:00 am! All convention information is available here.
Even though things might be quiet on the contest front for a while, keep checking in with us at www.mixedbarbershop.org for updates from the BHS International in Orlando, interesting information, and other mixed barbershop news!
