DescriptionThe Portland Community Chorus has a heritage dating back to the 1950s and 1960s, when it performed under the direction of Paul Vermel with the Portland Symphony Orchestra. After a decade of dormancy, the group was reorganized in 1978 by Joel Hayden, and was incorporated as a non-profit organization in the early 1980s.
The Chorus performs a wide variety of music, typically offering lighter popular fare in the fall, and classical and symphonic works in the spring.
Besides its annual concert schedule, the PCC serves as the core group for the Portland Symphony Orchestra's Magic of Christmas Chorus during the Symphony's Magic of Christmas, a Maine tradition since 1980. PCC also brings its enthusiasm for song to area assisted-living and group homes in an active Outreach program. And the Chorus has performed the National Anthem several times for the Portland Sea Dogs.
