REGION 21 IS DOING A WEBCAST

The Region 21 contests will be webcast live from the historic Orpheum Theater in Phoenix, Arizona, sharing all the excitement of our quartet and chorus contests!

The $35 webcast subscription is good for the live stream on Friday and Saturday, plus viewing of the archived webcast for two weeks, beginning Wednesday night April 10, 2019. The webcast registration is open now.

Our quartet webcast will begin on Friday, April 5, 2019 a few minutes before 2 PM MST (Note: Arizona remains on standard time, so it’s the same as PDT) for the quartet contest. Top quartets representing the Southwest will be putting their best onstage.

Our chorus competition will begin Saturday, April 6, 2019 a few minutes before 12:30 PM MST with performances by choruses from across the Southwestern United States. We’ll also be treated to a preview of things to come in New Orleans, Lousiana with performances by International competitor and hostess chapter San Diego Chorus. It promises to be an afternoon of great harmony!

Scroll to the bottom of the page for the orders of appearance and (approximate) on stage times for both contests. You can also download a pdf of the convention program using the link to the left. They will be posted as soon as they are available.

Your $35 webcast subscription will allow friends and family who can’t be in Phoenix to watch live on Friday and Saturday, then you can re-live the great experiences after you return home.

Webcast “Shout Outs” are also available. It’s a perfect way to send good luck wishes to a competitor, thank a coach or a director, or have a note read to your family or friends who are watching at home. For just $5.00 (plus processing fee), the webcasters will read your note “on the air!” Scroll down to order your Shout Out today!

Complete information about the Region 21 competition, including a schedule of events, ticket order forms, and hotel information is available on the spring regional page.

NOTES FROM OUR BROADCAST PARTNER, PSAVIDEO:

  • Subscribers please note. In order to accommodate your ease of viewing our broadcast, we ask that you sign up early – at least a couple days ahead of time April 5th – otherwise your access to the site may be delayed as we authorize your email access. If you sign up the day of a performance, a delay of up to 45 minutes may occur as we update the server with your access email address.
  • Your email will be your access to the viewing so please remember which email address you sign up with to watch our show. In the spirit of fairness, we require that you not share you email address to allow unpaid viewers to watch the show. You’re allowed 2 viewing options per email – one for your home PC or MAC and one for another service such as your smart phone, tablet, or iPad.
  • IMPORTANT. Your viewing enjoyment is our top priority but in the past, some have expressed problems viewing the live show. We are broadcasting in High Definition for quality and if you’re trying to watch on a smartphone, tablet or laptop while using Wi-Fi instead of a wired connection…. YOU MAY HAVE QUALITY ISSUES. This is due to your individual viewing situation and not our broadcast team. We monitor the show from several places during the performances to ensure the outgoing material. If you’re having a problem, please do not write the show or technical team as the problem is due to your viewing choices, so maybe move to a more stable environment like a PC with a good connection.
