SET 2022: Harmony on the Horizon

SET is a regional educational event scheduled for August 18-21, 2022, in Pasco, WA, and features the one-and-only Dale Syverson heading our Saturday class schedule. Dale is the Master 700 Director of the 5-time international champions, the Rich-Tone Chorus, which is located in the Dallas-Fort Worth, TX area. She is a Sweet Adelines International (SAI) Certified Expression and Certified Sound Judge, SAI and Regional Faculty Member, been on the SAI International Board of Directors, and received the SAI President's Lifetime Achievement Award in 2004. A talented baritone, Dale achieved international quartet champion status with Tiffanys in 1973 and Rumors in 1999. And, she's a hoot! You'll be educated and entertained all at once.

Our outstanding Region 13 faculty will teach the Friday classes, which will be organized by these tracks: Administrative Leaders, Directors, Vocal/General Membership (Basic), Vocal/General Membership (Advanced), and Quartets. And no worries! You can skip around between tracks (with the exception of some of the Directors classes!)

On Thursday and Friday, we will also again offer PVIs (personal vocal instruction) at $10 for 25 minutes (limited to 25 PVIs), and quartet coaching at $40 for 60 minutes (limited to 5 quartets). These go FAST, so don't delay registering! Please note that quartet coaching cannot be booked until all four quartet members have registered.

BONUS! Your registration includes a Thursday reception with a special performance by Phoenix International-bound Spirit of Spokane Chorus; Friday, Saturday and Sunday breakfasts; and, Saturday dinner! We're also having a Saturday evening show featuring Pride of Portland Chorus and PrimeTime Quartet (both also International-bound!), a return of the Novice Quartet/VLQ Extravaganza, and an Afterglow with tags! It's going to be a very fun-filled weekend.
