As Covid cases are on the decline, the PSU Choirs have been able to rehearse indoors, masked and distant, in a variety of configurations, combining to create different configurations of voices. The "Towards You" concerts consist of pre-recorded live performances captured in the exquisite acoustics of St. Philip Neri Catholic Church in SouthEast Portland at St. Mary's Catholic Church in Mt. Angel, Oregon, as well as outdoors at the Lan Su Chinese Garden in Portland's historic Chinatown.

The Portland State Chamber Choir spent the majority of Winter 2021 term learning music for double chorus by Bach and Gabrieli as well as a newly commissioned work by Matthew Lyon Hazzard. Each Choir rehearsed in separate rooms, combining only for the performance. This concert also includes a memorial to Professor Emeritus Bruce Browne who led the PSU Choirs from 1978 to 2006 and passed away in late 2020. Audiences will also hear PSU Chamber Choirs from the 1990s and 2000s performing music by Morten Lauridsen, Veljo Tormis, Gyogy Ligeti and Eric Whitacre and a virtual choir tribute from many of his former students.
