We are simply a group of women who love to sing. We come from all walks of life and bring many talents to this organization. Some of us have professional training, while others are new to choral singing, but we all share the same passion for music and the performing arts. Each member not only has a responsibility to attend rehearsals and performances, but also to contribute to their production and coordination. Rehearsal nights are filled with music and laughter as we join our hearts, spirits and voices into a joint endeavor. To achieve our mission, members are asked to contribute additional time and energy outside of rehearsal, and are expected to participate on a team of their interest. We have singing and non-singing members. The requirements to be a singing member are a love of singing, the ability to match pitch and hold a vocal part, and a willingness to learn. Our rehearsals are every Tuesday evening from 7:00pm to 9:15pm at the Allen Avenue UU Church in Portland.

We advise prospective members to familiarize themselves with our mission statement and statement of purpose and to make arrangements to visit a rehearsal to see whether Women in Harmony is the right group for you. We welcome all women with no barriers due to sexual orientation, race, class, ethnicity or economic background.  Scholarships are available to women who need financial assistance to cover the membership dues.

Chorus membership is currently full but you may join the waiting list after a simple voice check. When openings occur, new members are invited to join in the order they were placed on the waiting list.
