Your membership in the MBHA helps us promote and facilitate mixed barbershop groups throughout North America, and allows us to represent and legitimize the tradition of gender-mixed groups singing barbershop. There is now a recognized world championship of mixed quartets in the bi-annual World Mixed contest, hosted by BinG. In 2018 the first World Championship of Mixed Choruses will be held in Munich at the BinG convention. Throughout the world Mixed Barbershop is taking the stage. There is a real need for a North American entity to foster a community in which these groups can learn, improve, and thrive in a way that has been difficult within the confines of the single-gender traditions of the BHS, SAI, or HI organizations. In short, the MBHA is here for you, and we welcome your support as we build this invaluable resource for the future!
For 2017-18, our main task is to build our membership and keep in touch with those singing in mixed barbershop groups. We want to learn more about your particular needs as we ramp up the formal channels for competition and other programs. In support of these goals, we aim to keep the price of membership down, you can sign up below for and annual fee of only $20 USD.
Please send your success stories, ensemble pictures, content ideas, or questions to us at email@example.com.
We are no longer accepting paper registrations; if for any reason you need help registering, please send your query to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please ensure all members of the ensemble have completed their INDIVIDUAL MEMBERSHIPS with MBHA prior to starting the Ensemble Registration. You will be asked to add the names of the ensemble members as part of the registration (individual’s names will be pulled from the online MBHA membership roster).
Ensembles are also encouraged to register, and for a registration fee of $20 USD for quartets and $40 USD for choruses, we will include you in the list of reserved names, and you will be eligible to participate in any of the MBHA-affiliated contests. Each member of the ensemble (quartet/chorus) will also require an Individual Membership.
