Competition

 

Competition is a major and fun part of the barbershop world that helps keep us focused on raising the bar of performing excellence. We come together in a spirit of lighthearted contest, to see who's really got top form. We root for each other, cheer each other on, and once the medals have been handed out, we sing and party into the night!

 

District

Twice a year in the Spring and Fall, Holland Windmill Chorus can compete in our Pioneer District contest. Pioneer District comprises all of Michigan and parts of Ontario, Canada.  Many choruses and quartets come together to sing and compete. There are a number of judging categories, and awards go to the top-ranked quartets, as well as novice and senior champions.  

 

 

International

In the summer,  the winners of all district contests -- and other choruses and quartets scoring sufficiently high -- gather together at International competition. In 2017 International competition will be held in Las Vegas, NV.  Contests can be viewed on a live webcast on the BHS website. This is the ultimate in Barbershop competition -- not to be missed!
