Welcome to Region 21 Golden West –
Sweet Adelines International


Now Entering: The Gateway to Harmony! It’s time to celebrate and prepare for the Region 21 Spring Convention and Competition…



April 18-22, 2018

Again this year, our competition will take place at the historic Orpheum Theater with our convention hotel only a short distance away at the Renaissance Phoenix Downtown Hotel.

Everything you need to know – deadlines, schedules, forms, links – can be found on the Regional Contest page.

The deadline for registration and housing was March 15, 2018. You may still register for the event with a late fee. Hotel reservations at the group rate are no longer guaranteed.

When you make your travel plans, don’t forget the Club 21 Show on Thursday night and the fabulous education class with the judging panel on Sunday morning!

For those who cannot travel to Phoenix, Region 21 again will be presenting a webcast. Order the webcast now so that your log in will be processed before the start of the contest.



July 27-29, 2018

Town & Country Resort, San Diego, CA


The dynamic duo of Dale Syverson and Peggy Gram will be our guest faculty, plus the Stars of the West Young Women in Harmony contest, the Double Quartet Contest, and so much more. It’s a big weekend with a lot of things happening. Color choruses are back! And there’s a directors’ track on Friday. Event registration and housing are open now.

Register here!


Stars of the West

Young Women in Harmony (YWIH) Quartet Competition

Showcase your talents at the Region 21 contest, Stars of the West. Quartets of young women are invited to share their music with singers from across the region, compete to win prizes, and get valuable feedback from Sweet Adelines judges. All are welcome – though it is a Region 21 contest, quartets from across the country – or across the world – are invited to join us in sunny San Diego for education, competition, and fun.

Participation in the Stars of the West contest is in no way connected to the Rising Star contest – quartets may compete in both contests if they so choose. The winning quartet will receive four (4) All Events Tickets (AETs) with VIP seating to the Golden West Region 21 Spring Convention and Competition in Phoenix, AZ in April 2019. They will also be invited to perform on the Saturday evening “Harmony Showcase.”

Let your light shine at Stars of the West!
