Satori Men’s Chorus is a multi-level choir in Portland, Oregon, where men of all ages and musical abilities sing, grow as musicians, enjoy friendship and entertain audiences. We perform at least three concerts between September and mid-June, featuring a variety of musical styles, including traditional, contemporary pop, Broadway, folk, classical, jazz, and gospel.
Mission Statement: “We are a community of men expressing our commitment to peace through song.”
2019-20 Season Concerts:
Even though our March and June 2020 concerts were cancelled due to the Corona Virus, it hasn’t stopped us from singing via Zoom.
The title of our March concert was “Together We Rise,” and the music was intended to remind us all that we are part of this world together. Here is a YouTube link to “Caged Bird” https://youtu.be/c5whYuFDc8I
The poetry is from the book “Why the Caged Bird Sings” the autobiography of Maya Angelou, American writer and poet, and the music of Mark Hayes, American composer and arranger.
The poetry and music together touches the soul of so many who may feel their voices are not being heard.” Many thanks to Ben Milstein who created this recording by individual members sending him their parts, and to Ernie Tong for creating the video.
We continue to plan for a concert in the fall of 2020, and definitely for early in 2021.
Stay tuned to see the other activities we are involved in. Stay well.
Concerts will be at Central Portland, 1820 NE 21st Ave, Portland, OR
