Building community and creating joy; fostering quality singing through commitment, rehearsal and performance. The Tilikum Choir Community is a group of interested and enthusiastic singers, most of who are from the Portland Metropolitan area. We are partnered with Oregon State University Music in Portland: School of Arts and Communication. Most of our concerts feature a choral group from the University.
Tilikum Choir is directed by John Baker, former Rex Putnam High School choir director (1979-2011) and current choir director at Milwaukie Lutheran Church. John is also the Artistic Director of Portland Boychoir. Our singing year includes 3-4 terms: Fall, Holiday, Winter and Spring. In addition, this year we have our 1st (annual) tour planned to travel to Victoria B.C., August 6-10, 2020. We'd love for you to join us!
*The ability to match pitch and blend within a choral setting. Anyone needing help with matching pitch will have an opportunity to study privately (at the singer's expense) and return for a voice check when they feel ready.
*Attendance at most rehearsals and concerts
*Fees: $95 per term or $320 per year. (Early bird discount is $300 for those who pay for the year prior to August 15). There is a $25 music deposit which is collected when you join and kept as long as you continue singing. Fees help to defray administrative costs and to begin and maintain a music library for the choir. We hope YOU will consider joining us in Tilikum Community Choir!
