Spotlight Workshop

The SPOTLIGHT WORKSHOP is an education opportunity provided by the Quartet of Nations Region 31 of Sweet Adelines International. It is a one-day workshop in a location within reasonable distance for every chorus in Region 31, enabling you to travel there easily without incurring overnight accommodation.

For 2018, each SPOTLIGHT WORKSHOP will be facilitated by a Sweet Adelines International Faculty. Every workshop will focus on vocal production as well as some performance and rehearsal elements.

There are five workshop locations. Whilst it is not necessary to attend your local workshop, each chorus has been allocated to a particular workshop. You can also attend more than one workshop if you wish! Each workshop will begin at 10am and no later than 5pm. Please bring your own lunch!
