Becoming a Member

Welcome to the Land of the Sky!

We're the Asheville Chapter of the Barbershop Harmony Society!


You are welcome to attend and participate in as many of our rehearsals as you would like as a non-member. We will help you find the voice part that best fits your personal range and ability.

When you are ready to consider joining, we will ask you to be able to sing your part in tune as a member of a quartet. Although this may seem intimidating for some, we are pleased to help you get to this point with learning tracks and practice runs as you need them.

Simple steps to becoming a member:
  1. We will send you learning tracks of a song to learn.
  2. Sing with our members in a practice quartet with assistance until you feel comfortable holding a part on your own.
  3. Demonstrate your mastery of singing your part in tune as a member of a quartet.
  4. Fill out a membership form. Our membership team is prepared to answer any questions regarding dues to join BHS.
  5. Enjoy being a part of the world's largest all-male singing society and the Land of the Sky.
As a member of the Land of the Sky chapter you will have access to our library of music and will participate in performances, community activities, and contests with us. You will also become a member of the international Barbershop Harmony Society and the regional Carolinas District of BHS. Both provide multimedia and live educational opportunities to enhance your knowledge and ability as a musician, singer and performer.

We are by charter a quartet society and singing in a quartet and experiencing a ringing chord up close is one of the most wonderful experiences one can have. Not everyone chooses or needs to do this but it is an exciting option that will exist for you.

Our chapter consists of a wide variety of singers from those who simply enjoy singing to experienced musicians who are developing their craft in this exciting and challenging art form. Regardless of your level of experience we want to welcome you and hope you enjoy the journey as we work together to improve and become better singers together in a friendly and supportive environment.

It's great to be a barbershopper!
