COVID UPDATE as of April, 2022: Pride of Portland takes the the health and safety of our members and guests very seriously. Currently--following Multnomah County and Oregon State COVID guidelines--the chorus is holding in-person rehearsals inside a rehearsal facility. Hybrid rehearsals are also available. As of March 23, masks are optional for singers and guests. However, we will continue to require proof of vaccination, maintain appropriate distance on the risers, take air-cleaning breaks, and, most importantly, ask that you stay home if you feel sick. Our protocols are examined and updated as needed.
