The Portland Lesbian Choir is committed to excellence and enjoyment as a performance group, offering two formal concerts in the fall and one formal concert in the spring. Through our music, we support love and tolerance for all people and we sing a wide variety of styles from many sources and sometimes in other languages. Our themes include peace, freedom, social justice, and ecology, and with a special emphasis on music by, for, and about women. Occasionally we sing songs about love or songs that are simply fun to sing!
We perform music that affirms the value of all people regardless of gender, race, age, class, or political affiliation, and respect members’ feelings as they relate to these issues. We are proud to provide a supportive setting where music making is a positive experience and where women can develop confidence and concrete skills such as reading music, conducting, accompanying, arranging, etc.
Through our performances and other activities, the choir provides educational, cultural and social enrichment for its members and its audiences as well as providing a positive contribution to the community.
We seek to make the choir and choir performances accessible to all people, including people of color, differently abled people, people with children, and people with low incomes.
