ADP Annual Retreat

June 10-12, 2016

Tucson Hilton East

Tucson, AZ

Spend the weekend in Tucson, AZ with a team of certified arrangers – including Master Arranger (and regional treasure) Nancy Bergman – to work on the craft of barbershop arranging. The weekend will include opportunities for individual mentoring in arranging and music software, continuing work on the group arrangement, and classes in composition.

Go to the ADP page for all the details and to download the registration form. And email ADP Coordinator Anna Maria Parker right away with your plans to attend. She needs a preliminary count. Registration forms are due May 1, 2016.

Learn barbershop arranging and play a role in the future of our art form.



Stars of the West

Young Women in Harmony (YWIH) Quartet Competition

Showcase your talents at the new 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.


The cost to participate is an AET (there will be no additional contestant fee, youth rates apply). 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 on April 20-23, 2017. They will also be invited to perform on the Saturday evening “Harmony Showcase.”

Let your light shine at Stars of the West!
