Director Drew Osterhout
Pride of Portland is thrilled to have Drew Osterhout (OWE-stir-howt) as our chorus director. Drew is a Pacific Northwest native who spent time in St. Louis, MO, honing his skills with the four-time Barbershop Harmony Society (BHS) championship chorus, the Ambassadors of Harmony, where he was a baritone section leader.
Drew is experienced as a director, quartet and chorus singer. Over his 16 years in barbershop, Drew has co-directed the Northwest Vocal Project Chorus to a 6th place international finish in 2012 and has sung in numerous quartets, including Spitfire Quartet (2019 BHS International competitor), HHHHHHHHHHHH (2011 5th place collegiate quartet), and Code Blue (2012 BHS International competitor). He is also one of the head clinicians of Harmony Explosion Northwest, an a cappella camp for youth in the Seattle area.
Drew lives in Portland. When he's not directing the chorus or singing barbershop with PDX Voices Mixed Chorus, or Argonauts Quartet, he works as an Adjunct Professor at Portland State University teaching Introductory Physics.
