Read about the group, how we got started… where we’ve been, where we are now, and where we’re going!
Trouble with Trebles began in Spring of 2009 when three members of the Conchords Chorale community choir sat next to each other during a rehearsal and observed that their voices blended beautifully. These women decided to collaborate on a trio performance of the song “Winter Wonderland” for the Conchords Chorale Christmas concert at Portland’s famous Old Church. They enjoyed the work immensely, and began meeting regularly to challenge themselves further, eventually adding more members and a regular accompanist. At that point they needed a name, and chose “Trouble with Trebles” as a pun on the title of a popular episode from classic sci-fi TV series Star Trek. The abbreviated name “TWT” has been commonly used ever since.
From our early days into the present, TWT has performed at a wide variety of venues and events, including concerts at Portland’s Old Church and Eliot Chapel, and The Grotto’s Christmas Festival of Lights, as well as benefit concerts like Relay for Life and Mustard Seed Preschool at Sunset Covenant Church. We also sing for weddings and receptions, private parties, and, just like the Conchords Chorale where we got out start, we provide entertainment for many assisted living communities.
We’ve had many roster changes since our beginning, but we are a tight-knit group who have grown together in skill and talent with every step along the way. We are excited for all that the future holds, and we are continually working to grow as musicians. We enjoy making a difference in our community by offering quality musical entertainment. What’s next for us? Recording our work and sharing it with a wider audience! Watch for more info on this in the future!
