Learn More about BHS Chapters

A chapter is a formally chartered subsidiary of the Barbershop Harmony Society.

Chapters are licensed with their state or province and provide members of the BHS a place to engage in the barbershop hobby, usually by singing in a chorus or quartet.

The current array includes large competitive choruses, strong administrative capacity, and six-figure budgets; smaller hobby-focused choruses; established community choruses with modest competitive and artistic aims but a strong community and fraternal approaches; and everything in between.

Note: you must be a member of the Barbershop Harmony Society before joining a chapter. Check with your local chapter to understand the membership options available for that group.
