#BHSSLC Extras: So Much More Than Contest

At International, the contests take center stage, both literally and figuratively. And while you can share in the excitement from stage from home, sometimes there's nothing like being at the convention in person. There are so many options for even more barbershop fun that go on throughout the week.

On Friday, July 5th, choruses as large as nearly 150 men will take the stage in Salt Lake City.
