SET is a regional educational event held every-other summer on the odd-numbered years; the 2019 SET is scheduled for Thursday, August 15 - Sunday, August 18, 2019 at Seattle Pacific University, 3307 3rd Avenue West, in Seattle, WA. Classes and housing will be on campus.
The Region always brings in top-notch faculty for SET who share their vast knowledge with the region, and for 2019, we will have none other than Erin Howden, director of the 2018 International Championship Chorus, North Metro. Erin is also well-known throughout the barbershop world for her visual and choreography skills.
SET 2019 will follow this format:
- Thursday afternoon: reception and PVIs
- Friday: classes by regional faculty and PVIs
- Saturday: classes by Guest Faculty Erin Howden
- Saturday evening: Novice Quartet/VLQ Extravaganza is planned, followed by the Champs Show and a social “Glimmer” after the show
- Sunday morning: specialty workshop! The specialty topic for 2017 was Quartet Education, and in 2019, the specialty focus will be Leadership, and targeted to chapter leaders...current or future!
Registration will begin soon; please check back often. If you have questions, feel free to contact BethAnn Bock / [email protected] / (360) 773-5638.
What a wonderful time we had at our 2017 SET, held August 10-13 in Vancouver, WA, with special guest faculty is Bling!, the 2015 SAI Quartet Champions.
