ISing rehearsal tonight (February 20, 2018) has been cancelled due to snow.

ISing’s mission is to share innovative and exceptional choral music while supporting local nonprofit organizations.

Since our founding in 2005, ISing has worked to share high-quality music to make its community better. We believe that music can make the world a better place, and we put that into practice by raising money for nonprofit organizations in Beaverton, Washington County, and the greater Portland area.

What Do We Do?

ISing… well, we sing. But we do much more than that. We learn about diverse music and we share that — for free — with our audience. We tour internationally to share our culture with others and to bring their culture back with us. And we raise money for local charities.

Sing

Music is powerful. It connects people in ways that words cannot. We sing for the joy of it, but we also sing for the challenge. Instead of finding music that’s well within our abilities, we often select pieces that push us to improve and grow as individual musicians and as a choir.

Perform

While it’s incredibly satisfying to sing with a group of talented, committed people, it’s just not the same without an audience. Getting to share our hard work and passion with our appreciative, generous audience makes all the hours of rehearsal worth it.

Benefit

But we don’t just do it for the love of the music. We also want to highlight and support nonprofit organizations that are making our community a better place. So each of our concerts is a benefit show with 100% (that’s all of it) of the money collected going to our named beneficiary. Since we started, ISing has raised over $200,000 for nonprofit organizations in the area.

Tour

Every three years the choir goes on an international tour. Through touring we get to explore other cultures and musical traditions while sharing ours. But perhaps the most important thing that happens on tour is relationships that develop within the choir. We learn to not just sing with each other, but for each other.

Events

Misa Andina

A celebration of traditional Andean music, the Misa Andina is sung in Spanish, Latin, Norwegian and English and accompanied by zampoñas (panpipes) of all sizes, guitar, charango, cuatro, and percussion.

This is a benefit concert.  There is no charge for admission and no tickets are necessary.  100% of all donations collected will go to support our featured beneficiary, Bridging Voices.
