We close our 54th season with one of the most moving and beloved works of choral music ever written – Gabriel Fauré’s Requiem.
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 54th 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.

In order to continue our mission as a Portland choir to deliver high quality choral music to the community and to make it accessible to everyone, we depend on the generosity of donors like you. Your donation dollars will help us continue to provide discounted tickets for seniors and students, to partner with guest musicians like composer Ola Gjeilo, to purchase needed music and equipment and to sing in venues such as the Hollywood Theater and The Old Church.
