TRANSPOSE COMMUNITY CHOIR is a non-auditioned, accompanied singing group where we make music in a unique non-binary choir structure.
ACCHORD is an auditioned a cappella group which focuses on musical and social outreach in our local community.
Together, Transpose Community Choir and Acchord form TRANSPOSE PDX, which centers the transgender, non-binary, and gender nonconforming community in leadership, membership, and focus. Our mission is to empower our community by creating a brave and accountable space to expand musical skills, develop a sense of identity, and center our voices in song.
Transpose PDX Vision Statement:
“We are the ripple-starters, the ambassadors of change, and the consciousness-raisers. We humanize trans folks through the most human of art forms — singing! Through rural outreach performances we become visible; may the people who encounter us no longer feel alone, gain the courage to be their authentic selves, and be inspired to start their own ripples.”
