BarbershopHistory.com readers recently nominated Pride of Portland Chorus for FOUR Barbie Awards, which are announced annually following International Competitions (click here for an explanation of what the Barbie Awards are). Pride is pleased as punch to be nominated in the following categories:
Pride of Portland Chorus is the premier women's a cappella chorus of the Pacific Northwest. Education and musical excellence define who we are and shape our success in the competitive world of women's barbershop. Based in Portland, OR, our chorus draws from a rich reservoir of women from all over the Pacific Northwest.
We love guests and welcome new members! The chorus transitioned from virtual to outside only and finally to in-person rehearsals on September 29, and--following Multnomah County and Oregon State COVID guidelines--are currently gathering inside the church with masks. Social distancing is maintained, HEPA filters are in place, and we take breaks to help clear the air. We do hope you'll stop by and see what singing with Pride of Portland Chorus is all about.
Wednesdays @ 6:30 pm*
Latvian Lutheran Church
5500 SW Dosch Road
Portland, OR 97239
For questions or more information, see our Visit a Rehearsal page.
* We're starting a little earlier these days to be able to build in "clean air" breaks. If you can't make it until later, that's fine, too!
Go nuts with Pride of Portland Chorus
We are excited to sell nuts again this year! Because they are processed and delivered a couple of weeks after roasting, these nuts are among the freshest available, especially when compared to store bought nuts, which have been warehoused for three to four months. The Blue Diamond Roasted/Salted Almonds and Blue Diamond Smokehouse Almonds are well known for their high quality.
All nuts come in 1 pound bags that are pre-bagged from our supplier, following Food Safety Manufacturing guidelines (which exceed Covid-19 protocols). Or, you can get a discount by buying a full case in bulk (not bagged)! The chorus will follow Covid-19 safety measures to ensure that your nuts are handled safely, from the time they are received by Pride of Portland until they are delivered by your Pride of Portland member to you. This is Pride's only fundraiser for 2021 and your support will be most appreciated.

Live life on a high note!

A message from Pride of Portland Chorus
The events of the past year have been tumultuous and challenging for the members of Pride of Portland Chorus. Our Management Team, Music Team, and Diversity & Inclusion Team have all been engaging in extensive discussions about these issues, our stance, and how best to present our position. In the interim, the teams have developed a "Unity Logo," shown here, as a visual representation of our thoughts.
We're proud to be a part of a chorus with such open minds and loving hearts. To view our official, full-length statement, click here.
