Chorus & Quartet Contestants - REGISTER NOW!

Contestant Registrations

All MAD Contestants:

The new contest season is upon us. If you want to compete (Chorus or Quartet), you must register with the Barberscore website:

A wealth of information can be found in the FAQ and Tutorials sections of the Barberscore home page. Please read them BEFORE emailing me. ;-)

Please note that for all mixed harmony quartets competing this year at our MAD Prelims/Northern-Division convention, ALL members need to be members of the BHS in order to compete! They need to follow the same rules as male quartets have followed for years. We are not ready for female quartets, yet.

Also, being members of MBHA (Mixed Barbershop Harmony Association) is still optional and not required to compete in MAD mixed contests this year, unless you want to be considered for the international mixed contest in Germany in 2020, in which case the quartet and all the members need to be members of MBHA.

For information about the Rules and Regulations governing the MAD contests, please see:
  Contest Registrations, Rules & Regulations

Then, if you still have any questions, please email me at gplaagbhs@gmail.com.

Youth In Harmony Outreach Guidelines

Many of our chapters, quartets and choruses are eager to engage music educators to get involved in a barbershop outreach program at their local schools. This is a good thing! That said, it's critical to the success of our outreach efforts that we always leave the music educator with the best possible impression of the barbershop art form and how it can enhance/augment the teacher's music education program.

Dear Chapter Presidents, Secretaries, and Treasurers,


Changes in dues prices for chapters for 2018 must be updated in the BHS Member Center before NOVEMBER 1st
(more than 60 days in advance as has always been our practice).
If your chapter or district does not wish to change your dues prices, there is nothing else you need to do.
As a general reminder, it is not necessary to contact Society Headquarters to change your dues (Chapter or District) prices.

Here is a detailed message about the dues changes.

We will be running invoices for January in November and the amounts must be in the system prior to running the invoices. Attempted changes with a start date within 60 days will not be accepted by the computer system.

The MAD Marketing Team has created a Marketing Toolbox for Chapters & Quartets to use to promote your group.

MAD Chorus Plateau Definitions

Chorus plateau categories are based on the average percentile results
from the two previous contests in which the chorus was entered.

AAAA70% and above
AAA60 - 69.9%
AA55 - 59.9%
A54.9% and below.

First-time competitors will not be eligible for plateau awards,
but their initial contest score can be used to place them in their next contest.
A chorus that has not competed in any contest for more than four years
will reenter the contest cycle as a Plateau A chorus.
