The Portland Orff Schulwerk Association serves music educators in Oregon and Southwest Washington, promoting and supporting the teaching and enjoyment of music for the whole individual. Join us! Membership in POSA comes with benefits: reduced admission to workshops, use of our instrumentarium, and the knowledge that you are doing your part to spread the word about Orff Schulwerk in the Pacific Northwest. POSA is a chapter of AOSA, the American Orff Schulwerk Association.

Dear Portland Orff Family,

We hope this message finds you and your loved ones well. As we all know, our world is certainly at an unprecedented time in education and living with the COVID-19 virus. At this point in time, we are announcing that we will be canceling our April 18th workshop. There are too many unknowns to continue planning for this particular workshop.
However, we at Portland Orff would love to continue the spirit of our Orff 101 workshops, and we are in the beginning stages of planning an end-of-the-year workshop to be held towards the end of May or early June. Again, with the ever changing nature of what we’re facing, this too may not come to fruition. More details will be available in the near future.
If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out.

Your Portland Orff Board
