SPRING/SUMMER RECAP — GET READY FOR FALL CONTEST SEASON!

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.
