MBHA had an amazing spring and summer contest season! A total of nineteen MBHA quartets (9 Canadian and 14 US) and three MBHA choruses (2 Canadian and one US) dipped their toes in the competition waters this spring, bringing a special little extra seasoning to six BHS District and two HI Area conventions. There were also four non-MBHA quartets that competed as well. Please consider registering your mixed quartet or chorus if you haven’t already. Find registration information here.
Pictured here is Rare Blend Quartet, who traveled the yellow brick road to Harmony, Inc.’s Area 6 convention and sang “Ding, Dong, The Witch is Dead,” and “If I Only Had a Brain.” They are on Facebook — “like” them at Rare Blend Quartet!
