I Need You(th)!

Hello Members.

It's an exciting time to be a BHA member, with so many opportunities to get involved and help spread our wonderful artform to young people all across our nation.

Last year we reached out to educators in the form of our presence at musical education body events and the successful teachers scholarship. This provided educators with the opportunity to attend our Harmony College and to learn from the worlds best! We have decided to continue these avenues of outreach, double down, and offer even more avenues for teachers and their students to get involved with barbershop and BHA.

At this years National Convention in Adelaide, we will be running a schools contest, something that BHA has not done since 2015. With upcoming changes to standing order 6 and 6a, more students and young people will be able to cross the contest stage in quartets and choruses, and get involved with our clubs and regions.

Now, more than ever, I need your help. I need people with the time and motivation to help me reach out to educators and let them know about all the opportunities that BHA can provide. If you can spare some time to help reach out to more young people, and help bring more life into our association, please send me an email at 

Through your combined efforts we can all help our organisations achieve our vision of enriching Australia through Harmony.

Yours in Harmony
