Education is a top priority in NxNW Region 13! To learn more about some of our upcoming educational opportunities, see below.
2023 Area Schools
Are YOU planning to attend one of our fabulous area schools in the next two months? All schools are offering a great day of education and fun for just $30 ($40 for onsite registration). In order to keep costs down, the Regional Management Team made the decision to not incorporate a lunch at each school, so some are BYO and some will be provided by the specific area school for a cost. You will hear more about that from your specific host chorus.
Dates and times are shown below. If you have other questions, contact information for each event is also listed.

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 the quartet UnderAge was formed and went on to win the Young Women in Harmony International Rising Star contest in 2005. In 2008, they changed their name to LoveNotes...and the rest is history! The quartet won the coveted title of Queens of Harmony five years later. Throughout all of those years, Caitlin competed with Bay Area Showcase Chorus, was been a section leader, front row dancer, chorus and quartet coach, and now a front line director!
Caitlin is a Speech-Language Pathologist, working with individuals who have suffered brain injuries. She is married and has one child.
Stay tuned for more SET information.
