Virtual Mixed Barbershop Harmony Showcase, online, Wednesday, 19. August 2020



The MBHA “Mixed Harmony Showcase” Goes VIRTUAL!

Traditionally, the Mixed Barbershop Harmony Association presents a free “Showcase” of performances by mixed harmony ensembles during the Barbershop Harmony Society’s annual International Convention. Cancellation of this year’s Los Angeles convention due to the coronavirus pandemic offers us a unique opportunity to present our inaugural Virtual Mixed Barbershop Harmony Showcase, featuring video performances by quartets and choruses from around the world! Our Showcase will be presented virtually on Facebook and YouTube on Wednesday, August 19.

This project is an ideal opportunity for your group to be recognized and applauded around the world! Instead of a hotel ballroom with attendance of 200-300, your ensemble will be introduced to and enjoyed by a worldwide audience, including family, friends and new “fans!”

It’s Your Chance to Shine!

All mixed-gender ensembles from around the world, performing in the barbershop style, are welcome to submit a performance video for inclusion in the Showcase, regardless of affiliation with any barbershop organization. Video recordings may be of “live” performances (like recent-past contest or show recordings) or “virtual” performances, recorded “apart” using software like the Acapella app. Performances will be stitched together into an engaging online showcase, “premiered” to run at a prescribed date and time, and recorded to remain on social media for delayed viewing any time.

Health and Safety Considerations

To ensure your health and safety, we strongly encourage you to submit “live” recordings prepared prior to the coronavirus outbreak in your jurisdiction (national, state, local). YOU are responsible to comply with all constraints on in-person gatherings mandated or encouraged by your jurisdiction; MBHA assumes no liability for any adverse health consequences resulting from “singing together.” We are confident that sharing your past “live” performances will be well received by a whole set of new eyes and ears, and we want to ensure you’ll be safe and healthy to sing for years to come! Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
