Membership Info

Become a Thoroughbred

The Thoroughbreds are always looking for men of good character to join us on the risers.

Potential new members will first be taken through a 3-stage audition process.  Once accepted into the Chapter, new members will be guided through the application process.  Membership consists of International dues with the Barbershop Harmony Society, District dues with the Cardinal District and Chapter dues with The Thoroughbreds. The breakdown is as follows:

International BHS Dues

  • $144 for adults members (26-74)
  • $72 for youth members (under 26)
  • $108 for senior members (over 74)

Cardinal District Dues

  • $35 per year

Thoroughbred Chapter Dues

  • $25 per year for youth members
  • $50 per year for regular members
  • $25 per year for senior members

Additionally, members will also be expected to purchase their own uniforms for contests, shows and performances. Uniform expenses can vary depending on what you already own, but if the entire ensemble was purchased at one time, then both the formal and casual uniform will cost around $400.
