There are a number of ways of becoming a member of BHNZ.
JOIN A CHORUS
The Association is made up of a number of choruses across the country. The choruses meet regularly to sing and socialise.
Why not see if there's a chorus near you? See our chorus listing for a list of locations around New Zealand that have choruses.
MEMBER AT LARGE
For those of you not near a chorus, BHNZ offers a member at large option. This will allow you to keep in touch with the goings-on with BHNZ, attend BHNZ education events and compete in BHNZ quartet competitions.
Membership fees for a member at large are as follows:
Full Member: $62.50 for 6 months
Youth Member: $30 for 6 months (age 25 and under)

or email firstname.lastname@example.org and provide the following personal details:
Gender: <this is required because we have gender categories in our competitions>
Date of birth: <this is required because we have age categories in our competitions>
Part: Lead, Tenor, Baritone, Bass (if you are just joining you may not yet know what part you plan to sing - that's OK!)
I am happy to be on your mailing lists: Yes/No
We look forward to singing with you!
WANT TO START A NEW CHORUS?
We're always interested in people who want to start a chapter in their location. Contact Us and we'll get in touch and help you work through starting a chapter in your town.
Starting a chorus requires some work, but it's well worth it in the end. We also have individuals in many places around the country that aren't part of a chorus, so there may be others looking to work with you to create a new chorus in your town.
