Mixed Barbershop Harmony Association

The Mixed Barbershop Harmony Association (MBHA) is a not-for-profit charitable organization serving the needs of mixed barbershop harmony in North America. Established in 2014, its leadership comprises men and women with vast experience and participation in the barbershop style and performing in the mixed barbershop harmony genre. As of January 2016, the MBHA is an affiliate of the Barbershop Harmony Society.

Our vision: To be the official voice of mixed voice Barbershop Harmony in North America.

Our mission: To promote, encourage, and celebrate mixed voice Barbershop Harmony in North America

Through the MBHA, mixed barbershop harmony ensembles will find opportunities for competition and the ability to represent North America on the world stage at the World Mixed Harmony Competition in Germany, hosted by Barbershop in Germany (BinG!).
