Audition to Sing With Us

If you have extraordinary vocal skills and are looking to share your talent with the Portland community while having fun with other musicians like yourself, we are the ensemble for you and we look forward to hearing you audition! We are:

  • Exceptional. We are an audition-only choir delivering professional quality performances of rarely-heard and well-known repertoire.
  • Accessible. We sing choral music the way it was meant to be – inclusive, friendly, to be enjoyed by anyone.
  • Fun. We work hard, laugh a lot and socialize often.
  • Passionate. We share common passions: Passion for music, passion for our fellow singers, and passion for our audiences and community
  • Inclusive. We strive to nurture an environment where singers and audience members alike can share their authentic selves in rehearsals and performances.

CAE rehearses 3 hours per week on Monday evenings in the Hayhurst neighborhood in SW Portland, and puts on 4 concert series per concert season, plus other occasional performances. We generally have 1-2 extra rehearsals prior to a concert weekend, and a sectional rehearsal may also be called by the section leader (usually 1 per concert cycle).
