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.

•  Saturday: classes by Guest Faculty Erin Howden 
•  Saturday evening: Novice Quartet/VLQ Extravaganza, followed by the Champs Show and a social “Glimmer” after the show 
•  Sunday morning: Leadership specialty workshop! The specialty topic for 2017 was Quartet Education, and in 2019, the specialty focus will be Leadership, targeted to chapter leaders...current or future!

Novice Extravaganza!

It's fun! It's low-key! It's FUN! It's non-judgmental! It's FUN!

Thinking about dipping your toes into the quartet pool? Here's a great way to take the plunge: our Novice Extravaganza on Saturday night at SET.

Registering is easy. Just round up 4-8 members, half of which have never competed in any regional quartet competition. Pick a name for your group and prepare one (1) song to perform on Saturday evening after all the classes are over. Silly names and fun costumes are a plus but not required. Prizes will be awarded!

When you're ready to sign up, just visit this page! Questions? Contact Carol Ward / [email protected] or Cherie Letts / [email protected].
