The choral community of Oregon, and indeed, the country, was profoundly saddened to hear of the death of Dr. Bruce Browne. Bruce died Monday, November 23rd at St. Vincent Hospital in Beaverton.

Bruce was a recipient of the ORACDA "Hall of Fame" Award  October 24th, 2020.


He was indeed a legend in the northwest as a conductor, a teacher, and a promoter of choral music. 

His bio and a tribute from a former student can be found HERE
