The Orange County Women’s Chorus


The Orange County Women’s Chorus is an ensemble of more than 45 singing women who believe in raising our voices in song and solidarity! 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 enter our third decade, we are more excited than ever to bring our music to the community. The chorus was named an “Outstanding Arts Organization” by Arts Orange County in 2014, and was a prizewinner at the International Musical Eisteddfod in Llangollen, Wales in 2015. Many of our singers made their Carnegie Hall debut in June 2017 singing Kirke Mechem’s Songs of the Slave under the baton of Artistic Director, Eliza Rubenstein.

Are We There Yet?

As our nation moves toward health and normalcy, we’re thrilled to announce that our New York trip and our Carnegie debut are back on the calendar for June 2022! Assuming that the nationwide health outlook is positive and travel is safe, we’ll take the stage on June 27, 2022 for a featured program of our own, followed by a performance of Haydn’s Lord Nelson Mass (under the baton of OCWC Artistic Director Eliza Rubenstein, making her third Carnegie appearance as a conductor), for which we’ll be joined by an array of other choruses and a professional orchestra. You’ll hear lots more about our New York adventure in the months ahead! Thanks in advance for supporting us along the way.
