Sisters gets set to sing


Last updated 2/20/2024 at 9:18am

It has been four long years since Portland’s Low Bar Chorale – all professional touring musicians – made the trek to Sisters for a band-led sing-along. The community is now invited to raise voices to celebrate their return to The Belfry on Saturday March 2, for an evening of community and song.

For this night, you, your friends, your neighbors, and folks you don’t even know are the lead vocalists as the band backs us up on popular tunes. It could be anything from Elvis Presley to Elton John; if you don’t know all the lyrics, they’ll be projected on The Belfry’s walls. With many fans already in Sisters, the Low Bar Chorale is known for bringing strangers together to “sing like rock stars,” sometimes in three-part harmony.

Age Friendly Sisters Country (AFSC), the event promoter, welcomes all to join the chorus. They ask only that folks contribute what they can at the door to support AFSC’s mission of enhancing livability, promoting good neighborliness, and combating isolation in Sisters Country.

“Chasing away isolation and promoting social inclusion are fundamental to livability — so AFSC hopes Sisters will turn out for this community-wide event,” the organization said in a release. “Sisters has long been known for its rich musical tradition, and here is a chance for everyone to join the band for one night.”

Attendees are encouraged to offer a ride to someone who might not venture out after dark otherwise.

“Promise yourself you will meet at least one new person before you go home,” AFSC urged. “Grab the beverage or food of your choice as offered by the fine folks at The Belfry, and get ready to sing.”

All ages are welcome (some songs might contain profanity). Because people generally sing better standing up, the limited seating will be reserved for older adults and anyone who can’t stand for a couple of hours.

Embrace the harmony, make new connections, and let Sisters’ musical tradition unite us all. The Belfry doors open at 6 p.m., with singing at 7 p.m..

AFSC is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation serving as fiscal sponsor to action teams who are out making things better for folks of all ages in Sisters every day. For more information, visit and
