The Emerald Valley Opry is a non profit entertainment organization that operates from a foundation of family values in an atmosphere of family oriented entertainment.

Once per month the Emerald Valley Opry brings together talented men and women from around the northwest to showcase their skills as singers, songwriters and musicians through traditional county, blue grass, gospel, and a full platter of Americana Music.  

We currently hold performances in Powers Auditorium at Willamette High School.  The Emerald Valley Opry strongly believes that good school music programs help promote positive student achievements in both academic and life experience areas.  A large portion of the proceeds from our monthly shows are graciously donated to the Bethel School District for use in supporting the districts strong music curriculum.

   The Emerald Valley Opry would like to strengthen it’s commitment to the Bethel School District music program by offering this scholarship to a deserving Willamette High School music student in the hope that it will help them further their musical career.
