Joining the Barbershop Harmony Society

Member and Associate-level options are available to all. Stay tuned as changes to the Society Associate Program are announced soon.

“Singing has made me happier, and a better husband and father.
Singing has changed my life.”

Marty Monson, CEO


You are invited to be a part of something big.

We invite you to join a network of tens of thousands of North American singers who not only sing for their own happiness, but who live to share that joy with others. We’re working with community leaders, music educators and others to transform lives through song. We view anyone who promotes singing as a friend and co-traveler on our mission — no matter what type of music they want to sing.


Barbershop changes lives.

Andrew Lujan was a shy, reserved kid who didn’t know who he was, or who he wanted to be. When singing became a part of his life and barbershoppers reached into his life, it changed forever.
