Jim Taylor (McNary Choir Director) wrote the following about Male Ensemble Northwest:

Twenty-nine years ago I sat in a pew in a Salem church and watched the performance of a group called Male Ensemble Northwest.  I was a junior from Sprague High School.  I never forgot the experience…in fact, I still have the program from the concert.  I remember Wallace Long from Willamette University standing in the dead center of the group leading the way with his big bass voice and charismatic performance.   I remember the uproarious TV Medley by Dan Davison. I absolutely remember telling my choir director Mr. Gary Frame that I wanted to someday sing in that group.  And today I stand between Wallace and Dan and among these wonderful singers, educators and conductors. We are and aim to be “those who go before” and we want to create a life-long memory for the participants in our festivals. 

How can I keep from singing?
