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 in-person rehearsals on August 4, and--depending on Multnomah County and Oregon State COVID guidelines--are currently gathering outside in the church parking lot without masks, or inside on risers with masks, or inside without masks, OR a combination depending on the weather and guidelines. Social distancing is maintained and masking is always encouraged if you feel uncomfortable. But we do hope you'll stop by and see what singing with Pride of Portland Chorus is all about.

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.
