How do BHS and HFI donors qualify for VIP Seating?
A donor qualifies for the VIP section of the 2023 BHS’ International Convention if they have officially made a minimum annual pledge of $1,000 to the Barbershop Harmony Society (BHS) ecosystem* in 2022 or the BHS ecosystem has received a donation of $1,000 in 2023. The donation must go through either the Barbershop Harmony Society or Harmony Foundation International in order to be tracked for qualification.
Specific VIP seat assignments are managed by the Barbershop Harmony Society based on individual time, talent, and treasure commitments to the organization. Seat qualifications may change annually based on the space available and the recognition needs of the Barbershop Harmony Society.
*The Barbershop Harmony Society ecosystem is Harmony Hall, districts, chapters, AIC, AISQC, or brigades.
How will the seats be assigned?
VIP Premium Seating will be assigned by the Barbershop Harmony Society approximately 30 days prior to the convention. Donation level, VIP status and date/time of purchase will prioritize your seating location.
For regular seating, attendees will select their seats during the registration process.
