“The Portland Symphonic Choir is proud to present Portland audiences with the great choral masterworks for over 70 years. Our generous donors, audiences, singers and volunteers are who make it possible for us to sing these masterworks each year. Your contributions of time and treasure allow us to provide inspirational programming that bring these works to life. Thank you for continuing support.” — Cara Cantonwine, Executive Director
Whether we’re introducing new music from some of the most intriguing composers, or performing the beloved works that introduced you to the varied and beautiful world of choral music… your support of the Portland Symphonic Choir brings the great choral masterworks to life with excellence and passion.
The music we love to hear and perform comes with real costs. Membership dues and ticket sales simply don’t pay all the bills. Your contribution:
- means no one is turned away from our performances by providing low-cost tickets to students, seniors, and Arts for All participants;
- brings young singers new performance experiences by providing scholarships to some of our newest members;
- hires the best local orchestral musicians and accompanists for our performances;
- ensures that the Portland Symphonic Choir can continue to bring wonderful new music – and the best of the great choral masterworks – to Portland audiences for years to come.
This is truly Portland’s Choir. It belongs to all of us. Together, we are carrying on a tradition that began in Portland over 70 years ago. From our beginnings as the Portland Civic Chorus to our 140-member present, together we can continue to engage, educate and inspire our community by sharing the best of the choral genre we love with thousands of choral music lovers.
