We host a regional chorus and quartet contest and convention every spring, and we offer two additonal fun and educational events. We are run by a superb group of women who volunteer their time and experience to make the region run smoothly.  You can find more about our leadership and our region above under About.

Visit a Chorus


Region 5 offers opportunities to join a chorus in many cities across several states.  Joining a chorus is a wonderful way to learn how to sing or improve your existing vocal skills.  In a chorus, the director will assess your vocal range and place you in one of four voice parts.  You'll be educated in how to sing your best with that section of the chorus. The ability to read music is helpful but not a requirement.

On this journey, you'll meet many amazing, talented, friendly and helpful women and develop friendships that last a lifetime.  Click on Groups above and find a chorus near you!
