LABBS Alliances


On March 1st, 2021, LABBS became the first all-women international organisation to enter an alliance agreement with the US-based Barbershop Harmony Society.

Building on histories stretching back to 1938 for BHS, and to 1976 for LABBS, the historic alignment provides greater access to educational resources for all, judge training, and access to the Society's International Contest stage for LABBS quartets and choruses.
