Choral Arts Ensemble of Portland

A Premier Portland Choir

We are Portland’s choir, both geographically and in spirit and are committed to artistic excellence that enriches and inspires. Choral Arts Ensemble of Portland upholds a tradition of choral excellence, sharing a passion for our art while having a little fun along the way. In our 49th season, we continue our tradition of inspiring and enriching our broad community of audiences with unique and diverse programming performed at the highest artistic level.

“Collaborating with Choral Arts Ensemble is always a pleasure. A high level of professionalism permeates their work, coupled with a connection to audiences that is spontaneous and enjoyable. A Choral Arts Ensemble event is not to be missed.”

— Edmund Stone, All Classical Portland and “The Score”

Audition to Sing With Us!

The Choral Arts Ensemble of Portland is one of the region’s premier choirs. We are a fully-auditioned ensemble made up of singers who represent a variety of professional occupations and diverse singing experiences, but we have all joined for a simple reason – passion – for music, for our fellow singers and for our audiences. We seek choral singers of extraordinary skill who will share in this passion.
