Tilikum Choir Community

Our Mission:

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.

Tilikum Choir is directed by John Baker, former Rex Putnam High School choir director (1979-2011) and current choir director at Milwaukie Lutheran Church. Our singing year ranges from 2-4 terms, depending on the literature selected. This year we will have 2 major projects. We'd love for you to join us!

Requirements are:
*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: $150 per term or $250 per year for 2023-24 season. We hope YOU will consider joining us in the Tilikum Choir Community! 

*Rehearsals: Tilikum Choir Community rehearses on Tuesday nights from 7:00-8:30 pm in the Fellowship Hall at Milwaukie Lutheran Church, 3810 SE Lake RD, Milwaukie, OR 97222.
