Cocktail dress/formal attire
Oregon Repertory Singers is a premier choral arts 501(c)3 nonprofit organization founded in 1974. We consist of a professional-caliber adult choir that performs three annual programs, and an education- and performance-based youth choir music program unmatched in the region for children ages 4-18.
The Oregon Repertory Singers Adult Choir presents repertoire both rare and recognizable, encompassing a multitude of eras, languages and musical styles. With over 90 members, our close community of singers comes from all walks of life and many different communities throughout NW Oregon and SW Washington. We are both experienced and versatile, performing a wide variety of programming that promotes music from the newest generation of great composers alongside celebrated choral masterworks and music from other cultures and countries. Our performances leave audiences inspired and breathless.
The Oregon Repertory Singers Youth Choirs were established in 1994 to provide music education and choral performance opportunities for children (ages 4 to 18) in the greater Portland and SW Washington areas. We know that children who sing in choirs do better in school, make friends and build skills that benefit them throughout their lives. Our fun and engaging program uses the Kodaly method to teach students to sing what they see and write what they hear. The youth choirs, including four age appropriate co-ed choirs and two specialized groups, perform several entertaining concerts throughout the year.
Together with audience members, singers, and donors, we continue a long history of choral music excellence in the Portland Metro region.
