2020 Area Schools

Area Schools

Region 13’s Area Schools for 2020 may have been re-designed as virtual presentations, but they still offer the same goal as our in-person schools: to provide music education to members “in their own backyards”...quite literally for this year! Region 13 members (sorry, non-Region 13 Sweet Adelines!) are welcome to attend either or both Area Schools

Pre-registration will be required in order to ensure we have the correct Zoom license; however, there is no charge to any Region 13 members. 

Read on for class offerings at each Area School, and stay tuned for registration information.
