The Art Center East Grande Ronde Community Choir is a mixed-voice choral ensemble composed of 50-65 singers whoare community members, EOU students, staff, faculty, and area high school students. No audition is required. The choir rehearses and performs a wide variety of choral literature ranging from major works with orchestra to spirituals, folks songs, and musical theatre repertoire. 

The Grande Ronde Community Choir meets one evening per week. Rehearsals take place on the EOU campus in Loso Hall Room 123 from 7:00 – 8:30 p.m. The group is open to people age 14 and up and all vocal/music skill levels are welcome. This community music ensemble is made possible through ACE’s partnership with EOU, which donates rehearsal and performance space, and is supported by grant funding, community donors, and local sponsors.

Three or more GRCC concerts are scheduled each year. Annual performances include Choirs of the Valley Concert, EOU’s Holiday Music Festival, March Choral Concert and periodic concerts presented in conjunction with the EOU Chamber Choir, EOU African Drumming Group, Grande Ronde Symphony Orchestra, and visiting choral ensembles.

Concerts are held in McKenzie Theatre in Loso Hall on the EOU campus in La Grande. GRCC concerts are free; donations are always welcome.
