LABBS joins BHS Global Alliance

LABBS joins BHS Global Alliance
The Ladies Association of British Barbershop Singers (LABBS) has become the first all-women international organization to enter an alliance agreement with the Barbershop Harmony Society.

Building on histories stretching back to 1938 for BHS, and to 1976 for LABBS, the historic alignment will provide greater access to education resources for all, judge training, and access to the Society’s International Contest stage for LABBS quartets and choruses.

Founded in 1976, LABBS represents more than 2,200 female barbershop singers in around 60 choruses, including a youth chorus and a national chorus, and around 50 quartets stretching the length of the United Kingdom.

You can make a difference as a Society Board Member

Nominations are now open for five positions on the Board of Directors of the Barbershop Harmony Society.
For our Board to reflect who we are and who we wish to become, we are intentionally reaching out to be more transparent and welcoming in building the Board that will build our future. This especially applies to people who previously might never have considered themselves qualified for the role, whether from demographics (age, gender, heritage), previous barbershop experience, or simple lack of connections throughout the barbershop world.
Learn more about serving on the Board, and schedule a brief chat with the Nominating Committee to learn more about becoming a candidate.

On The Sunny Side of the Street

Arr. Mel Knight 
We love hearing the classics in mainstream culture, so when our Copyright & Licensing genius Janice Bane heard this in a TV ad for Kohl's, we reached for the catalog. Turns out it's a popular song: we publish  three different arrangements, by John Muir, Don Reckenbeil, and Mel Knight, the latter also available with learning tracks. Grab your coat, get your hat, and scurry over to shop.barbershop.org to get yours.
