Portland Peace Choir

The Portland Peace Choir is a Community Choir in Portland, OR.

WELCOME ~ In 2009 some singers who were interested in promoting peace through music decided to form a choir with a mission to share their light by singing songs of peace. These songs would bond both the choir and those that heard them in the spirit of peace.

The choir would be open to everyone, only a commitment to sing and memorize new songs. Sheet music would be provided along with an online “green room” for listening and downloading songs in each of the four part harmonies.

We have now enjoyed nearly ten years of singing together and open our hearts to you to join us. Browse through our website and please do come to a concert or a rehearsal.

Music and peace are such a special part of our lives that we need to honor them. This is your chance. Please take it.

Why We Sing

music-be-food

Singing in a Peace Choir is about much more than making music. It’s a radical act of optimism and knowing that what we do makes a difference. It builds community. We who sing in the Portland Peace Choir believe in what we are singing. We see our music as a path to creating more peace, not only in our own lives, but for our families, our neighbors, our communities and the world.

We sing to lessen our own isolation. We sing to feel connection, to belong and to feel joy. We sing to learn new languages, to honor sacred traditions, to heal our wounds. We sing to promote peace.

All experience and skill levels are welcome in our community choir.  Basses and tenors are especially needed! The Portland Peace Choir does not have any religious or political affiliations.
