Oregon Spirit Chorus is a community of innovative and passional women united through our love of singing and performing, dedicated to musical excellence and lifelong learning, and inspired by the bonds of friendship and the joy of creating harmony.


We are seeking new women of all ages to audition for membership in our chorus.  We are offering a two-week class called A'Cappella 101, which will consist of a group voice lesson to learn some vocal skills, talk about the American art form of barbershop harmony (yes, women sing barbershop!), learn a song with the chorus, and meet some amazing women who make up Oregon Spirit Chorus.

Time:   6:00 - 9:00 pm

Regional Division A Champs!

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!

Division A (small chorus): 2014, 2016, 2017, 2019
Division AA (mid-size chorus) 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013

Also, in 2010 and 2012, we won the coveted Audience Choice Award, and in 2009, we received the Most Improved Chorus Award with an increase in scores from the previous year by 106 points!   One of our most cherished moments was in 2015, when we had the honor of performing in the international Harmony Classic Competition in Las Vegas and came in 3rd Place - in the world!

Come and be a part of the excitement!
