Barbershop Harmony Society
The National Barbership Harmony Society at 80+ years and 22,000 members is the oldest and largest men’s musical organization devoted to a single instrument, a cappella voice. BHS sets our standards, manages the annual competition ladder from state through international stages, provides a library of some 7,500 songs and arrangements, provides training and supervises our finances. BHS is supported by member dues and donations, by income from contests and conventions and by sales of music and supporting materials. BHS also published the Harmonizer, a periodical of musical events, activities, and guidance for members.
