2019-2020 Youth Choir Rehearsal Schedule

The Youth Choirs rehearse weekly on Tuesday afternoons/evenings at Westminster Presbyterian Church in Northeast Portland (exact rehearsal time depends on specific choir, see below), unless noted otherwise. All ORSYC choirs perform at two mandatory primary concerts each season, in December and May. Approximate ranges of grade levels are offered for each choir, however placement (especially in Brioso and Vivo choirs) is tailored to each student’s experience, maturity, and knowledge. Read through the descriptions of our choirs below, and check out the calendar of events.
