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 27 choruses and over 45 quartets located throughout Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Oregon and Washington. You can see where we all are by clicking this regional map!

Thank you all who participated in our efforts to choose a new name; we had some wonderful suggestions. We will gradually be incorporating this change to the website, a new logo, and the rest of our marketing materials.
