Pride of Portland Chorus is still riding high from our 4th place finish at International competition last year and are pleased to announce our lineup for this year’s show:
- Speed of Sound, the 2015 Sweet Adelines International 2nd Place Quartet
- Portland Timbre, a Portland State University’s mens’ a cappella ensemble
- Pride of Portland Chorus, the 2015 Sweet Adelines International 4th Place Chorus and reigning regional champions
Our fall venue is the Performing Arts Center at Portland Community College’s Sylvania campus, and we will offer two shows, a 2 p.m. matinee and a 7 p.m evening performance.
Pride of Portland Chorus is the premiere women’s a cappella chorus in the Pacific Northwest and has been on the rise since our inimitable director, Ryan Heller, took the reigns in 2001. We are a perennial regional winner (six times) and have finished in the top ten at International’s every year but one that we competed. One of our show packages was so memorable that we were invited to compete on “America’s Got Talent” in 2012 and made it into the second qualifying round. The following year, Pride broke the vaunted 700 barrier to become one of a dozen choruses in the world to reach such a milestone. In November 2014, the chapter broke into the Top Five at the Sweet Adelines International Convention in Baltimore, MD, when they finished with fourth place medals. Now we’re preparing to move higher up the ladder at our next international competition in the fall of 2016!
