Resonate Choral Arts

Coming this Fall . . .

We’re excited to be pulling together another project funded in part by the Regional Arts & Culture Council and Work for Art. The Fall season will include all original songs by local singer-songwriters. If you’re a local songwriter, we’d love…

Summer Ukulele Choir

Hey Ladies! Tune up your ukes and we’ll get together, learn some chords, and sing some fun songs this summer! We’ll learn a couple new chords and techniques each week, and sing popular songs that we’ll learn by ear. We’ll…

Come to our Singing Party!

January 30, 2017; 7:15-9 p.m.
MCC Portland, 2400 NE Broadway

Think you might want to sing with us? Our singing party will be a fun opportunity to sing and socialize, and you’ll get a chance to find out if this is the right choir for you.

This season we’re exploring making connections through curiosity. Scholarships are given to young women, ages 13-20. Come early (6-7 p.m.) for a 5 minute individual session with our director to sort for voice part.

Resonate Choral Arts needs your help!

unnamedWe are beginning a project that inspires a conversation between people with different perspectives. With your answers to these three questions, we can include your voice in the conversation:

  • What question do you wish someone older or younger would ask you with a curious and open mind? (You can include the answer too.)
  • What would you like to ask them?
  • What song would you use to start a conversation about something important to you?

We hope you’ll ask these questions at family gatherings and other communities you’re involved in, and share the responses with us. We’ll be asking these questions in retirement communities and schools, trying to involve as many people as we can.

We’ll combine these responses to create a special program of questions and answers, songs and stories. We hope to inspire conversation, reflection and understanding.

Please send responses to director@ResonatePDX.org by December 7. We’ll keep in touch and let you know how the project is going!

Home!

The mantra for this season has been joy and ease, and it shows in our upcoming show!

We’ve spent the last couple months preparing songs about home, and digging up memories and stories from our own experiences. We’ve added guitar, ukulele, kazoo, and banjo! We’re playing random operations games and channeling our inner John & Ringo. We’ve got a lovely program to share with you. Come check it out!

Saturday, May 21, 7:30 p.m. at MCC Portland, 2400 NE Broadway, Portland $10

Monday, May 23, 7:30 p.m. at Curious Comedy Theater, 5225 NE Martin Luther King Jr Blvd, Portland $10 (come early for dinner and stay for drinks! Show your program from the first concert and get in free!)

Looking forward to seeing you soon!
