Welcome to North by Northwest Region 13

The 2017 Region 13 Convention will be Thursday through Saturday, April 27-29 in Spokane, WA. For complete information about all things convention, please visit our special convention website at r13convention.org.

Webcast: Region 13 will be webcasting both our quartet and chorus contests once again. The webcast is FREE (although, of course, making a donation in appreciation of--or support for--your favorite chapter or quartet helps ensure it will continue to stay that way!) Lions Mane Productions returns as our webcast producers; visit region13webcast.com to register

The webcast will cover the quartet and chorus contests as there will not be a Show of Champions this year. Also, no archives will be offered; live webcast only.
