Programming with Purpose
Resonance Ensemble, a professional vocal ensemble based in Portland, Oregon, creates thoughtful programs that
promote meaningful social change.
We amplify voices that have long been silenced, and we do so through moving, thematic concerts that highlight solo and choral voices, new and underrepresented composers, visual and other performing artists, and community partners.
Described as "one of Oregon's most valuable musical resources..." (Oregon ArtsWatch) and “one of the Northwest’s finest choirs” (Willamette Week), Resonance Ensemble's singers have become known in the Northwest for their brilliant tone, stylistic versatility, and expressive performances.
Resonance collaborates with arts partners including Poet in Residence S. Renee Mitchell, Pink Martini bandleader Thomas Lauderdale, pianist Hunter Noack, the Portland Chamber Orchestra, artist Therese Murdza, Friends of Chamber Music, the Portland Art Museum, actor Vin Shambry, and Cascadia Composers.
Our concerts are designed to reflect the times, and audience members often tell us that they
see their experiences reflected in our thought-provoking performances.
