History

The First RecruitsWhere It All Began...

Oregon Spirit Chorus was formed in October of 2005 to sing around the Salem area for the holidays. A few of those ladies stayed, we added a few extras and became a chartered chapter of Sweet Adelines International in May of 2007.

Since then we've been on an incredible adventure, filled with love and the joy of singing. Under the direction of Kathy Scheel, we have excelled in our division, earning Audience Choice awards, and in 2011, reaching the elusive "600" barrier which awarded Kathy the coveted titile of Master Director!  In 2015 we were given the opportunity to compete at the Sweet Adelines International Harmony Classic contest where we placed third in the world! 2017 saw us invited to sing in Honolulu on board the USS Missouri, for the 76th anniversary of Pearl Harbor.
