Now in its 24th year, the Harmony Foundation Collegiate Barbershop Quartet Contest (CBQC) gives young quartets from around the world the chance to compete for the title of "international champion". All you need is two songs, nerves of steel, a little dedication, and the desire to sing for the best audience in the world. 

Quartets who qualify for the International contest can apply for funding to help offset their competition expenses!

Two ways to qualify

  1. Go to a designated BHS-sponsored contest (see list) 
  2. NEW! Qualify by video, performing in front of a live audience.
