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!
At our Regional Convention in April 2019, we announced the winners of our First Ever Region 13 Arrangers WorkShop at HCNW Tag Writing Contest! This event, so-sponsored by North by Northwest Region 13 & Harmony College Northwest, was designed to encourage Barbershoppers in Region 13 or the Evergreen District, plus HCNW attendees, to get involved with composing and arranging tags for men’s, women’s, and mixed voices, and to freely sharing their tags with fellow barbershoppers.
A total of 20 tags were entered into 4 categories by 10 tag writers. Cash prizes for the winning tags were provided by Region 13, and a grant from the Bud Leabo Memorial Fund provided for 5 Registration Fee Scholarships to the 2019 Arrangers WorkShop.
And now you can sing the winning tags yourself (well, you're going to need three other people, but you know what we mean!). Download the winning tags by clicking here for a PDF!
