The Oregon Chorale is a sixty-voice symphonic choir directed by Jason Sabino. Founded by Bernie Kuehn and based in Hillsboro, Oregon, the Oregon Chorale has been delighting audiences since 1985, performing choral music from around the world and maintaining an appreciation for technique while exhibiting flexibility of musical style. The passion that we have for singing challenging, beautiful music is matched only by our love of the community and the fun we create together. We have sung in over 40 languages, traveled all over the world, and are constantly looking for the next big work to perform. Our formal concerts showcase a variety of styles from Classical to Baroque, Renaissance to Contemporary. Our less formal presentations include world folk music, spirituals, dinner theater and staged shows.
The Oregon Chorale recently received critical funding from Oregon Cultural Trust. A heartfelt THANK YOU to the Oregon Cultural Trust, the Clackamas County Cultural Coalition, and the Oregon Legislature for approving and allocating $25.7 million Coronavirus Relief Funds to 621 cultural and arts organizations around the state. We are truly honored to share in this tremendous and generous gift and are so grateful to live in a state that places true value on the arts!
We are very sorry, but our public concerts are cancelled due to public health concerns about the coronavirus.
Enjoy our latest video! May it bring hope and beauty to you and your loved ones.

We live in one of the most challenging times in recent memory, with the pandemic, social and political tension, mental health issues, financial issues, and so much more burdening us all. We’re all grieving in some way. But this song reminds me that we’re not alone in our struggle, despite the feeling of isolation. One of my favorite quotes is from Samuel Johnson – “All the performances of human art, at which we look with praise or wonder, are instances of the resistless force of perseverance…”. I’m in awe of not only our very own Oregon Chorale singers, but artists of all walks of life have created while weathering the hardships that have battered them.
