Choral Arts Ensemble of Portland2021-2022 Season
CAE is excited to welcome you all to our 2021-2022 season with live performances for the first time since February 2020! As this season progresses, we will be adding more information about upcoming concerns as details become available.
CAE is so thrilled to be returning to in-person activities! We are also taking the safety of our audience and singers very seriously.
Since the beginning of the pandemic, we have been dedicated to the idea that we would not return to the rehearsal space or the concert hall until we could do so safely. We have long viewed our concerts as a conversation between ensemble and audience – two groups that benefit from each other’s presence. Please read more about our COVID-19 precautions.
