Big Mouth Society is dedicated to the presentation, preservation, and education of historically-informed and community-minded musical and performance arts in Portland, Oregon. Big Mouth Society has attracted and maintained a core group of musicians who combine in unique groups for rehearsals, salons and performances. There is no formula for these ensembles, and participating musicians are of varied levels and backgrounds. As a result, they are proud to be one of the most diverse collectives of artists in Portland with people from many age groups, cultural origins, genders, and worldviews represented. Their commitment to cultivating and celebrating this diversity is reflected in a wide array of innovative projects.
They have anchored themselves deeply in Portland while maintaining a global vision.
