Membership with the Barbershop Harmony Society can change your life…
As a member of the Barbershop Harmony Society, I hope you allow singing to change your life! I know it has changed mine.

Whenever I break into song – especially four-part harmony – it’s easy to forget I ever had a care in the world. Singing has made me happier, and a better husband and father. Singing has changed my life.

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 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.

As a Barbershopper, you will inherit a rich legacy of music and friendship. Grow it, expand it, and in the process, make new traditions for yourself! In close harmony,

Marty Monson
CEO, Barbershop Harmony Society

My Dad was a member of the BHS for almost 35 years before he passed away suddenly in November 2001. It is an honor for me to be able to continue the legacy of barbershop harmony through my association with the BHS and as a member of the world-renowned Rich-Tone Chorus in Dallas, TX.
From an Associate
Not a day has gone by that I have not loved being a Sweet Adeline and learning what it is like to represent an organization that assists women to learn and grow in every aspect of her life. My Dad was happiest when he was performing with his barbershop friends or just hangin’ around socializing with the circle of friends we acquire the moment we walk into a rehearsal hall. I am proud of my newly acquired association and will enjoy the status it adds to my SAI/BHS way of life.
