Hear Us






2016 - 2017 Season

"Home is where one starts from," wrote T.S. Eliot, and home is at the heart of our 2016 – 2017 season, as we sing songs of homes loved, remembered, lost, found, and longed for. Join us for a year of the most touching, exhilarating music we've sung yet. Order season tickets and save up to 33%! Scroll to the bottom of the page for more information.


A Place of Tomorrow

Music, holidays, and children go together, and our December program is all about the children we know, the children we love, the children we once were, and the children who need us. Hear the Vesperae pro Festo Sancti Innocentium by Michael Haydn (Franz Joseph's younger brother!), performed with chamber orchestra, as well as works by Kirke Mechem, Ysaye Barnwell, John Tavener, Cecile Chaminade, and more.

Rocking the Boat

In our stirring spring concerts, we'll sing of the courage and the nostalgia of refugees, immigrants, and all manner of seekers who leave their homes behind to journey to a strange land. This unique, challenging, and uplifting program features Abbie Betinis's breathtaking From Behind the Caravan: Songs of Hâfez, the world premiere of a stunning new commissioned work by renowned composer Joan Szymko, and much more. Join us 30 minutes before each performance to meet the composer!

Rocking the Boat is made possible, in part, by a generous grant from the Robert J. and Doreen D. Marshall Fund for Dramatic Arts and Classical Music of the Orange County Community Foundation.


The Pet Project

Eliza, our Artistic Director, spent 20 years working with pets, so we can't believe it's taken 16 years for the OCWC to sing a concert about them! Cats, dogs, and other critters are on the loose for this program, which also features a very special guest appearance by the Irvine High School Women's Chorus and their director, Tina Peterson.
