Foris is a new Portland area chamber choir established in 2018 to amplify and nurture emerging voices for an inclusive choral community.

We spotlight the work of emerging local composers and create a welcoming space for them to engage with one another and with experienced singers as they further develop their craft. We also seek to broaden perception of who is and who can be a composer, engaging artists from across a variety of genres and backgrounds.

We amplify diverse voices, build bridges among musicians, and create space for emerging artists to support one another’s growth and benefit the broader community.
