2020 Choirs

Chor Leonis - Saint Helens, USA


Chor Leonis is the premiere chorus at St. Helens High School in St. Helens, Oregon. In 2018 they were named “Best Overall Chorus” and “Grand Champions” of a major music festival in Idaho, and they regularly rank in the top 10 Oregon high school choruses at the Oregon State Choir Championships. Chor Leonis also earned the coveted “Gold Award” at the San Francisco Heritage Festival this past April. This highly auditioned chorus travels regularly up and down the West Coast, and is currently planning a tour of Italy in 2022 where they will sing exclusively Renaissance music in the churches they first premiered.
