2019-2020 Season On Sale Now
CAE is proud to announce our 2019-2020 Season, filled with a great selection of musical genres spanning the centuries, from Rachmaninoff to world premieres!
Blest Pair of Sirens: Great English Choral Music
We open our 51st season with music from English composers of the 20th and 21st centuries, much of which is rarely performed outside the British Isles. Join us for works by Elgar, Jenkins, Howells, Mealor, Parry and others.
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 50th 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.
“CAE is a passionate community of musicians that is deeply engaged in sharing the beauty and power of choral music. It was an absolute pleasure to guest conduct them in a concert of my music and hope to work with them again soon. Portland is so fortunate to have this cultural gem in its midst!”
— Jake Runestad, Composer & Conductor
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.
