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!

And thanks for visiting!
SET is a regional educational event held in odd-numbered years. Our 2021 SET will be held November 11-14, 2021, in Pasco, WA, was to feature the one-and-only Dale Syverson, but has unfortunately been cancelled. Read below for a letter from our Regional Management Team:
"It is with a sad heart that the North by Northwest Region 13 Regional Management Team announces that Harmony on the Horizon SET 2021 that was scheduled November 11 – 14, 2021 will be rescheduled to August 18-21, 2022. Same place, same great guest faculty – Dale Syverson and our amazing regional faculty.
Based on recommendations from the county health department and the current COVID situation in the Pasco area, we determined the risk is simply too great to have this event in November and wanted to provide enough lead time for everyone to adjust their plans. The health and safety of our membership will always be our primary concern."

There was Harmony on the Horizon at our Virtual 2021 Regional Convention on April 8, 9, and 10, 2021! What fun we had! You can still watch all of the videos by clicking here.
As cities, states, regions, and countries are moving toward fewer/no restrictions related to COVID-19, many of our region’s choruses and quartets are returning to in-person rehearsals and performances. It is important to remember that choral singing is still considered a high-risk activity, although as more members become vaccinated, the risk decreases. The safety and good health of our members remains a top priority for Region 13 and Sweet Adelines International. We urge each chorus and quartet to be knowledgeable regarding state and local guidelines for in-person gatherings. These include the size of gatherings allowed, whether meetings are indoors/outdoors, if masks are required for all participants, if vaccinated participants do not have to wear a mask, physical distancing, ventilation and any other precautions required. Be prepared to put mitigation practices in place to avoid risk and protect your members. You may feel more comfortable if your members sign a waiver and release of liability prior to returning to in-person singing.

The Region 13 Regional Management Team's mission is:
• Developing Leaders
• Creating pathways for achieving regional goals
