Membership in BHOS is open to singers without audition. Our mission of excellence in presenting public performances of choral masterworks is achieved with a couple of key ingredients. They include:

Membership Fee
A concert fee in very small part offsets the considerable cost of staging serious choral works. Professional orchestras and soloists along with location fees represent some of the costs incurred. The membership fee varies with each performance season. See below for current information.

Vocal Scores
BHOS purchases all musical scores and makes them available (at our cost) to our group members for each performance. If a member already owns the score, and if the edition is compatible with the one being used, there’s no requirement to purchase new music. The cost of music varies according to the scope of the individual concert.

$55 per concert plus cost of music which varies for each concert.


$170 for all three concerts including music
(a savings of $30 for the year)

To register, please download the registration form, fill it out, and mail it with a check for the total membership fee to:

Concert Dress
Women: long or ¾-sleeve black blouse (jet-black, please), long black skirt or pants, black shoes, and black socks/nylons.
Men: Tux or facsimile – black jacket, black pants, white shirt, bowtie, black shoes (no sandals, please), and black socks.

PLEASE: no perfume, after-shave or glittery jewelry. Note that dress may change, with notice, for a given performance.

A full audience certainly motivates the performers to sing their best. It’s up to each of us to encourage friends, family and co-workers to come out and support our group by purchasing tickets and attending our performances.
