Southern Oregon Repertory Singers
This 50+voice ensemble is comprised of volunteer and paid choristers, many of whom are professional performers and/or music educators. Under the direction of Dr. Paul French, Director of Choral Studies at Southern Oregon University, Southern Oregon Repertory Singers has built a reputation as one of the finest choral groups performing in the Northwest and has gained national recognition from some of the most recognized conductors and soloists in the United States.
The singers’ high standard of artistry has been recognized with multiple invitations to perform at conferences for the American Choral Conductors Association and the American Guild of Organists. Commissioned works by Composer-in-Residence Craig Kingsbury were broadcast live to an estimated one million households internationally and praised by West Coast Live host Sedge Thompson as “beautiful music, beautiful singing.”
