At the beginning of this month, we sang at the opening of the Oregon House of Representatives as the legislature sessions begin! Sponsored by State Representative and House Speaker Tina Kotek. This amazing honor had nearly 40 choir members singing on Feb. 3rd. We hope to sing soon at the Oregon Senate sponsored by Senate Majority Leader Diane Rosenbaum.
Regular PLC rehearsals are every Wednesday evening 6:30pm-9pm at the Ainsworth United Church of Christ, 2941 NE Ainsworth Street, Portland 97211. We sing in "Michael Hall" with the entrance round back of the building. We recently performed at the PGMC sponsored event, Gay Fair on the Square as well as the Gay and Grey Expo and are planning a few more small performances soon.
We've had an exciting new season with a major performance, a rockin' cabaret fundraiser and numerous minor event participations. Our next concert, "A Family Affair" is scheduled for Saturday, June 21st. This concert will be sung in conjunction with our special guest choir, the Gay Straight Alliance Youth Chorus of Portland. This season will be our second with PLC director, Paul Zona and accompanist, Kim Horenstein.
The PLC is a non-audition community chorus welcoming all women who love to sing and laugh in harmony with other women, regardless of musical skill, background or experience. Join us for singing, skill-building, and fun. The PLC provides a supportive setting where members can improve their musical skills, and concerts include opportunities for solos and small group performances. Please email us any time at

The PLC is available to perform for minor performances, and last year we sang at the Portland Women's Crisis Line's Tribute to Domestic Violence Victims, the Oregon Bears' Holiday Show and Fundraiser, and "Zoolights". Our next minor performance is Sunday, September 21st as a part of the Rose City United Methodist Church "Gayla Event" honoring the Portland LGBTQ Community. Later in fall, we took to the stage at our own cabaret/fundraiser, "Broads on Broadway" at the Alberta Rose Theater, with special guest comedian, Belinda Carroll. We then performed at the SAGE Holiday party and plan to sing before the Oregon Legislature on February 3rd, 2014.
The PLC is available for minor performance consideration. Please email us directly for all your performance requests.
