SING WITH OSC! 

We welcome new women to sing in our annual Christmas Chorus and we now have 23 guests on the risers, learning the music for performing around the Salem community in December.  Here are the dates & places we will be singing:

Saturday, December 7:  A'Cappella Spirit, a community concert at the Dayspring Fellowship Church, 1755 Lockhaven Drive, Keizer.  This show, presented by Oregon Spirit Chorus, will feature the very best of barbershop harmony, with LoveNotes as the stars!  This quartet won the International Quartet Championship and continues to travel around the world, sharing their unique and beautiful harmonies!  We are so very fortunate to have them performing for us in Salem.   The show is from 3:00-5:00pm, followed by an Afterglow at Pietro's Pizza Parlor.  Tickets are at Shop OSC at the top of this page, or from members.

Sunday, December 15 - Oregon Garden.  We will be strolling around the stunning light displays from 5:30-8:30, followed by a nice hot cocoa by the fire!  

Tuesday, December 17 - Capitol Rotunda.  We love our annual appearance at the acoustically "live" rotunda and hope to see you there from 10:30-11:00.  Then we'll sing at the Salem Hospital for a couple of hours, then to Salem Centre from 3:00-5:00.  What a full day of music!


Here's a picture of our guests at a recent reheasal.  As you can see, Oregon Spirit Chorus is a place where you're have a LOT of fun while learning interesting music in 4-part a'cappella harmony.  We will be taking a couple of weeks off in late December, then back to regular rehearsals in January.  Every Tuesday night from 6:30-9:00 at the Elks Lodge (2336 Turner Road, Salem).  Then we go to a nearby restaurant for an "afterglow" of social time to unwind from the excitement of rehearsal.   Every week, singers ....
  • Learn vocal skills  
  • Meet the other awesome women singers 
  • Learn to sing in 4-part a'cappella harmony

Oregon Spirit Chorus once again achieved our goal of winning 1st Place in the Small Chorus Division A at the 2019 Regional Competition in Sparks, Nevada!  We are thrilled and motivated to keep on this path of musical excellence.   

OSC became a chapter of Sweet Adelines International in 2008 and has earned 1st Place in our Division nine (9) times since then!
