FEAST Community Choir is a proud member of the global Ubuntu Choirs Network. We believe that the joy of singing is a universal birthright, and that together, regardless of musical background, we can help improve the world by joining our voices in song.
Ubuntu choirs are:
- inclusive (open to people from all walks of life, all cultures, faiths, abilities)
- non-auditioned (all voices are welcome: given the right conditions, all can learn to sing in tune and in harmony)
- community-focused (singing to build community rather than primarily for performance)
- socially engaged (actively involved in supporting local and global communities through vocal outreach and fund-raising performances)
While building community through harmony, we also contribute to our neighbors. The Big Sing, at the end of each term, is a celebration and fund raising event for local charities. Last year, FEAST Community Choir donated funds to the Northeast Emergency Food Program.
We come from all quadrants of Portland, and many walks of life. Singing in a circle, looking at, and listening to each other, we make new friends and connections.
