Welcome to North by Northwest Region 13

Let's make some magic!

Region 13 will hold their 61st convention from April 26-29, 2018 in Spokane, WA, and we expect a whole lot of magic to be happening that weekend!


And, YES! Region 13 will be webcasting our quartet and chorus contests once again for the 2018 contest. Here is more information:

  -- The webcast URL is www.region13webcast.com and you can sign up now!
  -- Onstage times can be found here.
  -- The webcast will be FREE! (Although, of course, we would LOVE it if you'd make a donation in appreciation of or support for your favorite chapter or quartet!) 
​​  -- Webcast will be live only; no archives will be offered (but performances will be on YouTube approximately one week later).

North by Northwest Region 13 is an extraordinary group of women who gather together in celebration of the art form known as barbershop music. We are one of 24 regions in Sweet Adelines International, and our particular region covers 28 choruses and over 45 quartets located throughout Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Oregon and Washington. You can see where we all are by clicking to see our regional map!

Feel free to explore our site! Whether you wish to find a chorus to visit, want to hire a quartet for a celebration, plan to attend a show or workshop, or just enjoy some photos and videos, it's all here.

And thanks for visiting!
