Those who attend the camp meetings greatly enjoy the musical portion of the conventions. The choir and orchestra always begin the first Sunday morning service with a rousing and jubilant theme, setting the pace for the remainder of the services. Throughout the camp meeting, the choir, ensembles, and soloists sing songs that stir the hearts of the listeners. The orchestra, which presents varied special selections of sacred music, also plays during the congregational singing. In these meetings people really sing in heartfelt praise to God. There are a number of traditional favorite congregational songs, which are often sung several times during the camp meeting.
Of special interest to music lovers is the annual midsummer concert, currently given on the first Monday evening of the convention. Music lovers in the city of Portland and outlying areas look forward to this long-standing tradition and thoroughly enjoy the sacred and classical presentations by the orchestra, choirs, ensembles, and soloists.
