#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.


Here's what #BHSSLC attendees have to look forward to:


Education

Spend the week getting a world class vocal and performance crash course from the best in the business. You can even earn CEUs and Grad Credits!

50-minute classes will be held throughout the day on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Saturday. with EIGHTY sessions to choose from. Learn everything from vocal technique, creating better experiences for your chorus, directing, using parody, and more - with levels from beginner to seasoned veteran accounted for in the extensive curriculum.

No pre-registration is necessary - if you've registered for the convention, you can just pick a class and show up!

SING!

Just because your quartet or chorus isn't crossing the stage, doesn't mean you have to keep your singing voice to yourself in Salt Lake City! The city will be ringing with chords at any time of day, but there are Tag Zones where you can go and sing with new friends.

Head to the first floor of the Little America Hotel from 5 pm - 11 pm on Wednesday through Friday and 1 pm - 11 pm on Saturday. New to barbershop? Not to worry - tags will be facilitated by a long list of kind barbershop veterans with plenty of tags to teach!

Take a Private Lesson

BHS' very own Music Education Specialist, Steve Scott, will be available for lessons with quartets and individual singers. 45 minute lessons are available for only $60 - reserve your lesson know at education@barbershop.org or 800-876-7464.

And best of all - you'll be surrounded by people from all over the world who love music and singing just as much as you do. Expect planned and impromptu social time, life-changing conversation, and a shared experience that you'll cherish for a lifetime!

Life In Color: BHS Contests

Perhaps almost as exciting as the chords they ring are the clothes they wear.

BHS Quartet Champions: A Look Back

While the style and presentation of barbershop has evolved overtime, the end goal of perfectly executed close harmony remains and the cream still rises to the top. Here's a look back at the last ten champions and songs from their winning sets - who will join them this year?

Everyone In Harmony Contest Expansion

Over the last several years, the Barbershop Harmony Society has been diligently working on the implementation of their latest mission: Everyone In Harmony.

#BHSSLC Where is Parkside Harmony?

On Friday July 5th, 27 choruses, will compete for a coveted spot in the top 5 of Barbershop Harmony Society’s 2019 International Competition. One of the recent favorites, and a top 5 finisher the past 2 years was Parkside Harmony of the Mid-Atlantic District. 

#BHSSLC NextGen Varsity Contest

The youth of barbershop take the big stage at Internationals on Wednesday, July 3 with twenty quartets, all members 25 years old or younger, competing in the Next Generation Varsity Quartet Contest.

#BHSSLC Choruses To Watch

On Friday, July 5th, choruses as large as nearly 150 men will take the stage in Salt Lake City. Unlike the quartets, choruses have just one appearance on stage - one chance to wow the judges and entertain the audience. From theatrics to gymnastics, we can expect much more than just tight harmonies.
