Welcome to North by Northwest Region 13

No front page content has been created yet.


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!

COVID-19 updates

As cities, states, regions, and countries are in various phases of reopening and restrictions, many questions have been asked regarding rehearsals and gatherings for our Region 13 members. First, all SA-affiliated groups should keep in mind that choral singing is one of the most risky activities in which an individual can engage, currently. The top priority of Sweet Adelines International and NxNW Region 13 is the health and safety of all our members. Below is information and resources to help you navigate make knowledgeable decisions.

  • COVID-19 Rehearsal Guidance: read this letter from Sweet Adelines International listing resources you can use when considering in-person rehearsals
  • SAI's Virtual Rehearsals webpage: useful information about how best to hold virtual rehearsals, for directors and members
  • Announcement: Region 13's regional convention, previously scheduled for April 8-11, 2021, has been cancelled. We will, however, be having a virtual convention. More information is available above.
