Meet Pride of Portland Chorus
Who are we? We are a force of nature, a wall of sound, a stream of musical consciousness that reaches in and jars something elemental inside you. We are shimmering softs and thundering louds, delicate diminuendos and soaring crescendos. We are singers, dancers, and actresses: flirty and fierce, mischievous and mannered, bashful and bold. We are Pride of Portland.
Pride's signature sound is a blend of energy, artistry and finesse that will sweep you off your feet and transport you to another place and time. We are the best and brightest assemblage of a cappella singers the region has to offer. We are also the first Sweet Adelines chorus ever invited to audition for America's Got Talent!
What does it mean to be part of the Pride?
To become a Pride of Portland Sweet Adeline is to become a consummate performer and seasoned competitor. Our specialty is barbershop but we dabble in all things a cappella. Once you see us perform, one thing becomes perfectly clear: barbershop is not a hobby. It's a calling.
To step up onto the risers for the first time is to step into a whole new world of ringing chords and sparkling overtones. It begins a journey of personal growth and instant sisterhood. The coaching, the choreography, the musical education - it's only the half of it. Nothing compares to the feeling of standing side by side with one hundred of your closest friends, creating a unit sound that visibly moves an audience.
To be a part of that while making enduring friendships and memories that last a lifetime...pretty irresistible.
