Pass Over, Pass Through

The Princeton University Chapel Choir and their director, longtime friend-of-the-OCWC Dr. Nicole Aldrich, are traveling west to join us on March 18 and 19, 2023 for American composer Andrea Clearfield’s Tse Go La (“At the Threshold of This Life”), based on texts and music from her studies in northern Nepal, and presented with an ensemble that combines western instruments and Tibetan percussion. You’ll be transfixed by the poetry and transported by the music.

The Orange County Women’s Chorus

The Orange County Women’s Chorus is an ensemble of more than 50 singing women representing more than 20 communities in Orange County as well as Los Angeles, San Bernardino, and San Diego counties. Our repertoire spans many eras and cultures, and ranges from the serious to the silly, but our commitment to performing quality music at the highest level never changes. We’ve been “causing treble” in Orange County since 1997, and as we celebrate our 25th anniversary in 2022 – 2023, we are more excited than ever to bring our music to the community. The Orange County Women’s Chorus made our Carnegie Hall debut on June 27, 2022 with a spotlight performance followed by Franz Joseph Haydn’s Lord Nelson Mass under the baton of Artistic Director, Eliza Rubenstein. We were named an “Outstanding Arts Organization” by Arts Orange County in 2014, and were a prizewinner at the International Musical Eisteddfod in Llangollen, Wales in 2015.

Upcoming Performances

Look, Be, Leap!

We’ve been “causing treble” for a quarter century, and we want everyone to come to our party!

We’re singing about friendship, courage, struggle, and the joy and power of raising our voices together throughout the years. (And there will be cake, because it’s not a party without cake.)
