2024 Summer Enrichment Time

Glitter on the River...in Pasco!

SET 2024 will be held August 22-24, 2024 in Pasco, WA. Early Bird Registration will open on June 1!

Meet our guest faculty member, Caitlin Castelino

Our outstanding guest faculty this summer is Caitlin Castelino, baritone of SAI International Champion Quartet, LoveNotes (see their winning set here) and director of the Diablo Vista Chorus, our current eighth place International chorus. Caitlin is a regional faculty member in Region 12, as well as a member of the Sweet Adelines International Faculty.

Caitlin started singing barbershop when she was only 11 years old, but was hooked from the start and knew right away she wanted to be in a quartet. In 2002 she began singing with UnderAge Quartet, who went on to win the Young Women in Harmony International Rising Star contest in 2005. In 2008, UnderAge changed their name to LoveNotes, and went on to win the Pacific Shores Region 12 contest in 2009. Four years later, they became Queens of Harmony (check out their finals package here)!

Caitlin graduated with a master’s degree in Speech-Language Pathology, and she will bring her knowledge of the vocal mechanism, healthy voice production, and voice therapy techniques to her classes and coaching sessions. When she’s not running around doing "all the things," Caitlin enjoys time with her husband, Peter, and their active toddler.

What's happening at SET?

Here are some of the things happening during this fun weekend:

Thursday starts off the weekend with PVIs and quartet coaching. That night also will be our Kickoff. If you can swing it, plan to arrive on Thursday!
Friday's schedule features our talented regional faculty, who will be heading up classes for members, quartets, directors, marketing, script writing...and lots more! AND, Caitlin will be our special Friday night presenter.
Saturday is "all Caitlin, all the time!" By the time it's over, you'll wish you had more room in your brain to hold all that wonderful information.
Saturday's dinner is included with your registration fee. The exact menu is being finalized, but it's going to be tasty!

Saturday evening entertainment will include a Novice Quartet/VLQ Extravaganza! Start thinking about putting together a pop-up quartet or VLQ (Very Large Quartet) for this entertaining part of our weekend. Also on Saturday evening we will treated to fun performances by some of our choruses and quartets.
*  The It's In The Can Contest is returning! Shelly Pardis, chair of that committee, will be sending information to all chorus Team Coordinators/Presidents soon.

Now that you know the details about SET 2024, make a note that Early Bird Registration opens on June 1! We'll upload the URL when the time is closer.
