Portland Lesbian Choir presents: All Aboard
ALL ABOARD!!!! It is hard to believe that 29 years ago a group of friends were sitting around a living room, singing, when someone suggested they form a choir. From that Sunday afternoon 35 like-minded women were entreated to join, forming what is now the Portland Lesbian Choir. While the member numbers have swelled and receded, over time, like the ebb and flow of the tides, one thing has remained constant, this group is about the love of music and singing it loud and proud to the community. “Come Travel with Us,” as we close out our 29th season!

This fall we performed at the Q Center sponsored event, Gay Fair on the Square on September 14th as well as the Gay and Grey Expo. Our fun and talent-filled winter concert, “Lights, Camera, Action!” was held January 31st, 2015 to a delighted audience.
Last season report: At the beginning of the last season, we sang at the opening of the Oregon House of Representatives as the legislature sessions began and we were sponsored by State Representative and House Speaker Tina Kotek. This amazing honor had nearly 40 choir members singing on Feb. 3rd, 2014. We also hope to sing at the next session of the Oregon Senate sponsored by Senate Majority Leader Diane Rosenbaum. We began our formal concert season last year with a rockin’ cabaret fundraiser, “Broads on Broadway” with special guest comedian, Belinda Carroll. Our exciting winter concert was titled “Come Rain or Shine”, and our spring concert titled “ "A Family Affair", was presented in conjunction with our special guest choir, the Gay Straight Alliance Youth Chorus of Portland.
