A ‘Duet’ With Oregon Rep Singers

Oregon Repertory Singers, Portland’s internationally renowned choral group, has teamed up with Lewis & Clark to become the College’s first choir in residence.

“Oregon Repertory Singers is one of the finest musical groups in the Pacific Northwest, programming imaginative old and new works,” says Nora Beck, associate professor of music and department chair. “This partnership is perfect for the College and our students. I envision student singers and instrumentalists joining the choir for performances, and the choir performing the works of student composers.”

Founded in 1974, the 65-voice Oregon Repertory Singers has an extensive choral repertoire, with special emphasis on new music by American composers. Gilbert Seeley, James W. Rogers Professor of Music at Lewis & Clark, has been artistic director for Oregon Repertory Singers since 1976.
