The Low Bar Chorale is a drop-in community pop chorus open to anyone
from secret shower soloists, to experienced singers who like to hang out, have a
few drinks and sing in an informal setting. Think Bar Trivia Night, but everyone
who comes is in the band. The house band includes musicians from the likes of
Blind Pilot, Brandi Carlisle, the Eels and Todd Rundgren’s Utopia. (Hey, it’s
Portland.) The drop-in happens twice a month at The Astoria Room in Revolution
Hall. Covered artists include Radiohead, Daft Punk, The Cure, The
Decemberists, Lady Gaga, Haim and The Fleet Foxes.
Founded in March, 2016 by producer Kate Sokoloff (Founder/Co-Creator, Live
Wire!) and musician Ben Landsverk (Wonderly), past events include a David
Bowie Tribute in OMSI’s Planetarium; Cheer the F**k Up, a sold-out annual
holiday singalong and Jesus Christ Superstar Sing-along at Mississippi Studios.
Free and open to the all-ages public.
No outside food or beverage, please. Leashed dogs welcome.
