Quartet Regional Registration Form
Regional registration is the process by which we get all the miscellaneous information we need about each competing chapter.
ONLY THE QUARTET CONTACT SHOULD FILL OUT THIS FORM;
one per quartet!
If you've done this a few years in a row, you'll notice we have removed the webcast section this year. That information will be collected separately; you will be notified about it in a timely manner.
After you submit the following information for your quartet, be sure your quartet members are all signed up for an All Event Tickets. For quartet members, this should be done through affiliated Region 13 chapters or with
, our Alternate Membership Liaison, depending on your member status. CAL members can order with
"regular" chapter if they wish, so feel free to register with your friends or quartet-mates' chorus(es)!
A quick overview of the 6 quartet registration steps:
