If a Barbershop-style/A cappella arrangement is not available for retail purchase from the Barbershop Harmony Society ("BHS") or other distributor, BHS offers a service to seek the license which authorizes the creation of the arrangement and distribution of copies to your group. If you are interested in using this service, please complete and submit this form, authorizing BHS to seek the clearance on your behalf.
The cost of obtaining an arrangement permission through BHS varies and are set blindly by each copyright holder. For a no-obligations fee estimate for an arrangement clearance, or if you have any questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org before submitting this form.
Barbershop Harmony Society's Copyright & Licensing Manager Janice Bane discusses the different types of arrangements and the steps you can take to ensure your unpublished, custom, or out-of-print arrangement is legal for your group to use!
