A Better World. Singing.


BHS Announces Next Step Toward Everyone In Harmony

The Barbershop Harmony Society believes that what we offer – the experience of singing together in harmony – is meaningful to all people, and should therefore be accessible to people in all combinations. Since the announcement of the Strategic Vision last June, the Society Board and staff leadership have been involved in ongoing discussions about the best way to achieve the vision of Everyone in Harmony. Today, we are thrilled to announce our next step in the realization of that vision.

Effective June 19, 2018, membership in the Barbershop Harmony Society is open to EVERYONE. We welcome women to join the Barbershop Harmony Society as members.

Everyone means EVERYONE – people of every age, of every background, every gender identity, every race, every sexual orientation, every political opinion or spiritual belief. Every person who loves to harmonize has a place in our family.
